It surely wasn't the way Gerolsteiner's David Kopp had planned to start his 2007 season. Only 16 km into the first race in the Mallorca Challenge he hit the deck and had to drop out of the race. He wasn't seriously injured, though, and will be at the start again on Tuesday.
The crash was caused by another rider falling into his front wheel while Kopp was taking a drink, so he had no chance to react, explained Gerolsteiner spokesman Jörg Grünefeld. The crash happened at 55 km/hour, so it could have ended up being a lot worse, according to Kopp.
