'It's a disgrace that descent was in a race' says Tom Dumoulin after Kruijswijk crashes out of Dauphiné

The Dutchman didn't mince his words on a difficult day for Jumbo-Visma where Primož Roglič also crashed

Tom Dumoulin has labelled the descent that caused his team-mate Steven Kruijswijk and Bora-Hansgrohe's Emanuel Buchmann to abandon the Critérium du Dauphiné "a disgrace".

The two GC riders crashed on the descent of the Col de Plain Bois, with team leader Primož Roglič also crashing later in the stage but making it to the finish and retaining the race lead.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
