Yikes: Another Huge Pileup At The Tour de France
Andre Greipel emerged from a pack of riders to win a spring to the finish at Stage 5, becoming the first to claim multiple stages in the 2015 Tour de France.
But there were also three crashes during Stage 5, making the race a battle of attrition at this point.
"It looked like a rider clipped the right-hand kerb approaching a corner, about halfway down the main field," said Rob Hayles.
"It started with one of the Katusha riders and it set off all the way down the peloton."
Thibaut Pinot is involved. It wasn't especially high speed but there were plenty down.
Stage 5 results:
1. Andre Greipel (Ger) Lotto 4hrs 39mins
2. Peter Sagan (Slo) Tinkoff - Saxo same time
