Sky rider hopes to continue Tour despite crash

Sky rider hopes to continue Tour despite crash

Team Sky rider Juan Antonio Flecha says he hopes to be at the starting line of the Tour de France's next stage, despite suffering numerous wounds after he and fellow racer Johnny Hoogerland were sideswiped by a reckless driver.
Flecha says that after the crash towards the end of Sunday's ninth stage, his first reaction was "to look for my bike and get going again."
But Flecha told reporters at a team news conference on the Tour's first rest day Monday that "I saw the fork was broken, I was bleeding everywhere, I saw Johnny laying there, and I said 'Wow.'"
