Critérium du Dauphiné: Tao Geoghegan Hart stage 7 non-starter as mass crash fallout continues

Lidl-Trek have confirmed that Britain’s Tao Geoghegan Hart has abandoned the Critérium du Dauphiné as a result of injuries incurred in the mass crash late on stage 5.

Geoghegan Hart was able to complete the first Alpine stage on Friday, but sat up as soon as the final climb, Le Collet d’Allevard, began. He completed the day’s racing in 116th.

Logan Currie (Lotto-Dstny) also did not start on Saturday due to injuries from the mass crash on stage 5 and Hugo Toumire (Cofidis) as a combination of illness and injuries also sustained on Thursday.

Others who did not start were Anders Skaarseth (Uno-X Mobility), Clement Russo (Groupama-FDJ), Christophe Juul Jensen and Blake Quick (both Jayco-AIUIa) and Abner Umba (Astana Qazaqstan).

“I was modulating my speed quite well and I saw the guys ahead of me slip out and fall,” Geoghegan Hart told reporters on Friday morning about his crash experiences and injuries.
