Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers) says that he's still "pretty sore" after crashing out of the Giro d'Italia with a broken pelvis last week, and will now enjoy a bit of downtime before starting active recovery and building for next season.

Thomas crashed after hitting a stray water bottle soon after the start of stage 3 of the Giro last week, and although he finished the stage, and x-rays initially revealed that he hadn't broken anything, further x-rays the next morning revealed a fractured pelvis, forcing him out of the race.
