Zaballa abandons, Marchante crashes

There was bad luck for Saunier Duval-Prodir in the fifth stage of the Tour de France. First, Constantino Zaballa had to abandon - he injured his knee in yesterday's team time trial and was suffering all night. Zaballa was really motivated to take part in the Tour de France and he would have been an important element in the mountain stages. Then, the team's Jose Angel Gomez Marchante crashed. He hit a photographer's motorcycle, spending a lot of energy to rejoin the peloton. It is not yet known whether his injuries are serious. Saunier Duval's management hopes for him to recover quickly for the coming mountains.
