Chris Froome Giro d'Italia hopes in chaos after CRASH before the tour starts

Cycling race

Chris Froome got off to a rocky start in his quest to win a third consecutive Grand Tour title, crashing during a training run ahead of the opening stage of the Giro d'Italia and drawing blood around his right knee.

He was beaten by two fellow Britons and while it was no great surprise that Alex Dowsett should finish fifth, Simon Yates will no doubt be delighted with his seventh place, 20s down on Dumoulin. Victor Campenaerts (Lotto-Soudal) rounded off the day's podium.

Froome was not the only rider to crash during the recon, Ben King, who is competing for Team Dimension Data said on Twitter that three riders, including Froome, had crashed on the course, ending his tweet with "ghost holes" to express his concern with the course. Stage 3 will follow a lengthy, 229-kilometre route - the second-longest leg of the entire race - from Beersheba in the Negev desert down to Israel's southern tip of Eilat along the Red Sea.

The short 9.7km techincal course around the streets of Jerusalem promised to be hard and cause problems from the off.

Instagram Adds Stories Sharing From Spotify, More Face Filters, and Video Chat
Finally, the Explore section of the Instagram app is getting a refresh with some AI power thrown in, via TechCrunch . This will allow third-party entities to create new experiences, from text styles, stickers, and face filters.

The race will then transfer to Italy, and the island of Sicily, for an early rest day on Monday.

More riders passed through the finish as we waited for the favourites to begin, Italian Valerio Conti (UAE-Team Emirates) set a fair time knocking Cavanga off of second spot.

European time trial champion Campenaerts set the same time as Dennis but unfortunately lost out on top spot by a matter of milliseconds.

The Giro starts at 11:50 BST, with defending champion Tom Dumoulin setting off last at 14:45 BST.
