Big Crash in Tour of Switzerland
The crash took place at the very front of the field in the last 100 meters of the sprint, causing a huge domino effect, as riders going 40-50 mph could not stop. Cavendish, Haussler, Boonen, and Ciolek all went down at the front, and countless other riders piled up. Oh, the humanity! I hope everyone's okay. Congrats to "Ale-jet" Petacchi, who avoided the mess and took the win.
