Flecha angry at team for lack of support

Juan Antonio Flecha is very angry at his team, saying he did not get the support he deserved as Team Rabobank captain. After crashing shortly before the Forest of Wallers-Arenberg, he said that the team management did not send anyone to help him back to the peloton.

More specifically, he told Sportwereld.be, he said that team-mates Sebastian Langeveld, Joost Posthuma and Tom Leezer were all in the lead group with him when someone drove against his rear wheel, causing the crash. "I asked team leader Adri van Houwelingen to have them wait for me. But what did he tell me [was] that there was no Rabobanker there. I called Posthuma myself, but it was too late."
