The Saunier Duval-Prodir team didn't have the best of Fridays. Racing on two fronts, in the Giro d'Italia and the Volta a Catalunya, the team experienced several crashes at critical moments of the stage. In the Giro, Manuele Mori had attacked with Emanuele Sella on the last descent, and was looking good for a first or second place in the stage, before he crashed twice (with Sella) and lost his chance. His final result was fourth, as well as a bleeding chin, which required stitches.
In the Volta a Catalunya, David Cañada was part of the winning break as well, but with 1 km to go, he crashed. His final result was also fourth, but he was relatively uninjured and also moved up to second on the general classification.
