Kanstantin Sivtsov and Sky head bunch, Criterium du Dauphine 2012, stage two

Sky rides on the front in the Tour de France today from Samatan to Pau, but missing one man. It may be hard to believe now, but the team went from nine to only eight riders with the crash of Kanstantsin Siutsou shortly after the race started in Liège.

"He has sent messages to me and has wished the team all the best," sports director, Sean Yates told Cycling Weekly. "He misses us and we're missing him."
