Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain Victorious) says he is not to blame for Primož Roglič's crash on stage three of the Tour de France 2021.

The Jumbo-Visma rider hit the ground hard in the final 10km of the stage, ripping his shorts and jersey and looking battered and bloodied by the end of the stage. Roglič finished 1-21 down on stage winner Tim Merlier (Alpecin-Fenix) because of the crash, but more importantly, sits 56 seconds down on last year's winner Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) and 1-04 down on Ineos Grenadiers' Richard Carapaz.
