Caleb Ewan's bad luck appears to have carried over from the Giro d'Italia and into the Tour de France as the Australian crashed on stage 13 and finished in next-to-last place in Saint-Étienne. Lotto Soudal have not confirmed the extent of Ewan's injuries but the rider has said he has a sore knee and shoulder.

Ewan was a favourite for the stage, but he unexpectedly went down after appearing to have collided with his Lotto Soudal teammates as they led the peloton through a right-hand corner with just over 70km to go in their effort to keep the day's breakaway at a manageable distance.
