Andrew Talansky's Tour de France hopes took another tumble today when he crashed with Geraint Thomas heading into the finale of stage eight to La Mauselaine.

"Two crashes in two days is never a good idea," Garmin-Sharp sports director Charly Wegelius told Cycling Weekly. "No one ever wants to do that but they're bike riders and they're used to falling off. When he gets a bit of time, he'll focus again and he'll be fine."
