Of the four crashes into the same ravine, just that of Laurens De Plus (QuickStep Floors) was spectacularly captured on camera.
According to a team statement, De Plus escaped without major injury but underwent examinations at the Cantù hospital. Team Wilier Triestina - Selle Italia confirmed similar news via Twitter for Daniel Martinez:
But UAE Team Emirates rider Simone Petilli and Jans Bakelants came off the worst.
Petilli was transferred to a hospital in Varese, the team confirming he suffered a concussion, a fracture of the right occipital condyle (base of the skull), a fracture of the right tranverse process of the D1 vertebra, a broken right collarbone and broken right shoulder blade. And to top it all off, he also suffered wounds near the right eye.
AG2R Mondiale confirmed Jans Bakelants suffered a similar amount of injury after examination at a Como hospital with seven rib fractures, and a fracture-compaction of the first lumbar vertebra and the third lumbar vertebra.
