Kevin Van Impe crashes at training camp

There were tense moments on Saturday when Kevin Van Impe took a bad fall during a training ride at the Quick Step camp. Van Impe was riding along a flat section coming off of the Col de Rates with the rest of the team, when suddenly two dogs ran into the middle of the road.

"It all happened in an instant," said Van Impe. "I was pedaling toward the back of the group. In front of me everyone braked to avoid the dogs. I immediately put on the brakes, but it was already too late. I hit Hulsmans' back wheel and then I hit the ground."
