After a fast start to the stage 17 Vuelta a Espana time trial, a late crash on the 38.4km Burgos course halted Cameron Meyer's momentum with the Orica-GreenEdge rider falling heavily on his right side and breaking his collarbone. Meyer remounted and crossed the line in 84th place, 5:17 minutes down on stage winner and new overall leader Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin) before heading off to the hospital where scans revealed the break.
