Jack Haig abandons the Tour de France on stage 5 after sustaining injuries from a crash with 30 kilometres to go. A loose barrier was hit into the road, causing the crash, with several other riders hitting the deck.
Haig was taken to hospital following the crash. Jack had multiple abrasions and bruises over the body and required stitches for a cut above the elbow. CT scans also revealed multiple non-displaced wrist fractures. Fortunately, Jack had no concussion or head injury and will travel home tomorrow.
The team would like to thank the race doctor, medical staff and Centre Hospitalier de Valenciennes for their support.
