Training crash in Québec

Six out of eight Euskaltel riders crashed on a training ride in Québec yesterday, reports Cyclingnews. Apparently one of the riders touched wheels with the one in front of him and took with him five riders. Miguel Mínguez is reportedly the one worst off.

"A rider lost concentration and touched a wheel. He went down", said Samu Sánchez at the team's hotel. "No one was prepared for it and suddenly we were all on the tarmac. Obviously not what you want to happen on a training ride. Mínguez took the brunt of the crash and I reckon it's unlikely he'll line-up on Friday."

On a similar training ride prior to last year's event, the same thing happened. "It's not ideal", Samu said matter-of-factly.

There's no official word from the team yet.
