Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers) is out of this year’s Giro d’Italia, after addtional scans on Tuesday morning revealed a pelvis fracture. 

The 2018 Tour de France winner and favourite for this year’s Giro crashed heavily on stage 3 to the summit of Mount Etna when a bidon became caught under his wheels in the neutralized start. The Welshman lost his balance and crashed heavily on his left-hand-side.
