Mitchelton-SCOTT riders, including leader Adam Yates, were involved in three separate crashes in the final 30km of another hectic finish to stage two of the Tour de France.
Yates was paced safely back into the bunch before further crashes also saw Australian Luke Durbridge and South African champion Daryl Impey also hit the deck.
World champion Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) was one of few to avoid the carnage and won the stage from a small group of remaining riders, whilst Yates was given bunch time courtesy of the three-kilometre rule.
