Miles Scotson (Groupama-FDJ) was down to the final kilometres of a long solo attack during stage 1 of the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana, looking as if he was smoothly sailing toward his first international victory in the professional ranks, and then he crashed on the wet slippery roads.

“With ten kilometers to go, I was pretty sure I was going to win, but I started thinking too much for the overall, taking as many seconds as I could. In the end, I threw away a lot of seconds…,” Scotson said.
