Dan Martin's Giro d'Italia ended just after he began the team time trial in Belfast. The Irishman crashed over halfway into the 21.7-kilometre time trial with three other Garmin team-mates and sat still on the side on the wet road nursing his right collarbone.

Garmin was able to continue with five riders and finish the time trial with 28-08 minutes. Martin remained behind and with a suspected broken collarbone.
