An early crash between Nagem and Hostert saw racing stop this afternoon on stage 3 of Flèche du Sud.

Sport Director, Klaas Lodewyck said: “Stage 3 was neutralised after the crash which took place as we were going down a descent less than 10 kilometers from the start. It was a big crash which started near the front of the peloton and caused many riders to fall and injury themselves. Luckily none of our riders were involved.”

“The race was stopped for almost two hours and then we made our way two the finishing circuit with the main bunch. The decision was made to stop racing so all the rider rode together at a steady pace and there was no results or winner for the stage.”

“The guys were unsurprisingly a little shaken by the today’s crash so we went on an easy ride as a group to spin the legs and focus the mind ahead of tomorrow’s stage which is due to go ahead as planned.”
