Vuelta a Burgos race director blames David Dekker for stage two crash: ‘It is a mistake by Dekker – it was not a speed bump’

The Vuelta a Burgos race director has placed the majority of the blame of the stage two crash on David Dekker (Jumbo-Visma), stating he crashed after hitting a 2.5cm high zebra crossing, rather than a speed bump.

On the second stage of the Spanish race, Dekker flipped over his handlebars after hitting something on the road and losing control of the bike 700m from the finish line. Many other riders crashed and picked up injuries as a result, with AG2R Citroën rider Damien Touzé the worst affected rider as he suffered a head trauma and concussion after being thrown over the barriers.
