A little scare for Alejandro in the Tour

A little scare for Alejandro in the Tour

The victim of a crash at the beginning of the stage

Alejandro took the 15th position of stage 6, after a hectic final because of a crash that happened in the final km of the stage won by Zdenek Stybar.

Alejandro was able to avoid that crash that involved amongst others his Movistar Team mate Nairo Quintana.

Nevertheless, the Spaniard crashed at the beginning of the stage. After having a nature break, the Spanish road race champion slipped on the gravel when he went back on his bike, suffering bruises in his left gluteus and calf, as well as some pain all over his body and a blow to his back.
“At this moment, I’m feeling pretty well,” explained Alejandro just after crossing the line. “It was really difficult to get into the sprint, but that swerve in the bunch and the pile-up turned it into impossible. We should get the same time, so there’s no problem,” he concluded.
