Geraint Thomas withdraw from start of Giro d´Italia!
One of the favorites for the overall victory, Welshman Geraint Thomas has announced that he will not participate in Giro d´Italia due to injury. It was on Monday when Geraint had an accident when he hit a water bottle on the road and fell badly.
The winner of the TDF 2018 got back on the bike immediately despite the crash and held on until the first climb where it was clear he had serious physical problems and he lost more than 12 minutes. He intended to continue the following day but knew something was seriously wrong and did not want to make the damage worse.
According to his team Ineos-Grenadiers, Geraint suffers from pelvic fracture.
