A day of two crashes sees Geoghegan Hart lose ground at Giro d'Italia

A tale of two crashes for Tao Geoghegan Hart (Team Ineos) on stage 3 of the Giro d'Italia. The first, with around 50 kilometres remaining, left him with a cut to his right knee and short but wholehearted chase to regain the peloton. The second, with a little over four kilometres to go, proved rather more costly, leaving the Briton with further abrasions, a shredded jersey and a deficit of 1:28 at day's end.
