Ineos-Grenadiers' Geraint Thomas has crashed during the neutral zone of the third stage in the Giro d'Italia and will consider in the morning his continuation in the race.

The former Tour de France winner hit a bottle that was on the floor at the neutral zone and hit the deck hard on his left side. Although he continued riding on the stage, it was evident that he was not well as he dropped from the pack during the first slopes of the final climb and lost more than eleven minutes to the overall leader of the grand tour, Joao Almeida.

"Geraint crashed on his left side, so he took a significant blow to the back of his left hip, and he has some abrasions on his left arm and leg," said Ineos Grenadiers' Doctor Phil Riley. "After the stage he was taken for x-rays at the finish.

"The initial x-rays didn’t show anything broken, but we are awaiting confirmation in the morning. We will treat him tonight, continue to monitor him and then review it in the morning again."
