The first stage of the Tour de France was eventful with many crashes, some of which were only known at the end of the course. BMC's Nicolas Roche was involved in one of those.

The Irishman was one of the victims of the day's rain over Düsseldorf and at the end of the stage he was in 121th position, losing 1 minute and 14 seconds to Time Trial winner Geraint Thomas.

"The roads were a little bit greasy underneath the rain, it doesn't help. I'm not sure if (the crash was because) it was a little bit of oil or the actual tram tracks, because that was where the tracks were too," the rider said at the end of the stage. "I'm a bit disappointed".
