The 12th stage could end up as a costly affair for the Lotto-Belisol team as its entire sprint train was brought down in the late crash that marred the finish. Marcel Sieberg, Jurgen Roelandts and Greg Henderson all suffered various injuries and are now left licking their wounds ahead of tomorrow's sprint stage.

 

When Jurgen Van Den Broeck crashed in stage 5 and had to abandon this year's Tour de France, the Lotto-Belisol team was left with only one objective at the race: sprint wins for Andre Greipel. So far that has been a success as the German was first across the line and the world-famous train of Marcel Sieberg, Jurgen Roelandts and Greg Henderson have simply dominated the sprint finishes.

 

That domination may now have come an end and Greipel's chances of more victories have been dealt a huge blow as those three riders were all brought down when William Bonnet (FDJ) crashed late in today's 12th stage. Greipel himself managed to escape the tumble but lost all chances of success today.

 

Luckily, none of the riders have any fractures but they are all left with bad injuries that may severely hamper their performance on Friday's and Saturday's stages that are the only sprint finishes left before the Champs-Elysees. Sieberg has a bruise on the right knee while Henderson who was seen lying on the ground for some time has an open wound on the left elbow.

 

Roelandts did not go down himself but another rider hit him hard from behind. He was already suffering from back problems and so the incident will do him no good as he tries to recover from those health concerns.

 

At the moment, all three riders are expected to start tomorrow's stage but whether they will be able to once again dominated the expected sprint finish is left to be seen.
