The onboard highlights from today’s eleventh stage of the Tour de France from Carcassonne to Montpellier really show what a difficult stage it was for the riders.
There were numerous crashes during the stage as the race was affected by strong crosswinds. The riders also had to contend with narrow roads and a lot of street furniture in the various villages they passed through.
Amongst those who were caught up in crashes were Rafal Majka (Tinkoff), Thibaut Pinot (FDJ), Jurgen van den Broeck (Katusha), Luis Leon Sanchez (Astana) and Edward Theuns (Trek-Segafredo).
Van den Broeck was able to finish the stage, but was later diagnosed with a fractured shoulder. He will not start Stage 12 tomorrow.
Here are the onboard highlights from the race.
