On the same day Tour de France leader Jonas Vingegaard's teammate Primož Roglič abandoned due to injuries from a previous crash, more troubles struck his team as Steven Kruijswijk crashed on stage 15 and is out of the race.

The Dutchman fell along with Team DSM's Martin Tusveld and was taken off the course with a suspected fractured collarbone. Green jersey holder Wout van Aert, also held up in the incident, rode off knowing that Kruijswijk would not be continuing.
