ARENBERG DU PORTE HAINAUT, France, July 09, 2014 (AFP) – Defending champion
Chris Froome crashed out of the Tour de France on Wednesday as Vincenzo Nibali
took control of the race.

Dutchman Lars Boom brilliantly won Wednesday’s wet and cobbled 152.5km
stage from Ypres in Belgium to Arenberg du Porte Hainaut, but the big winner
was Nibali.

Expertly marshalled by his Astana teammate Jakob Fuglsang, the Italian came
home in third, 19sec behind Boom, but put significant time into all his main
rivals for the final victory in Paris.

Froome’s abandonment was the biggest news of the day as the Briton suffered
a nightmare race.

“Devastated to have to withdraw from this years TDF. Injured wrist and
tough conditions made controlling my bike near to impossible.” Froome tweeted
after the stage.

The 29-year-old had already crashed on Tuesday’s stage and was wearing a
splint to protect his left wrist.

But he toppled again just 40 minutes into Wednesday’s stage and when he
went down another time an hour later, he was visibly in pain, holding his
right arm across his body.

Froome shook his head and climbed into a Sky team car, his race over.

His two crashes had come before the peloton had even reached the perilous
cobbled sections on the stage.

The next biggest loser was Alberto Contador, who trailed in 2min 54sec
behind Boom and is now 19th overall and 2:37 behind Nibali.

The other overall contenders didn’t fare much better, though, as world
champion Rui Costa, Spaniard Alejandro Valverde and American Tejay Van
Garderen are now all 2:11 back.

Criterium du Dauphine winner Andrew Talansky is 2:05 off the pace while
Australian Richie Porte, now Team Sky’s leader in the absence of Froome, is
probably the best placed of the potential winners at 1:54, although an eye
should be kept on young Pole Michal Kwiatkowski who is just 50sec back.

Nibali said it was unfortunate for Froome but that crashes were part of
cycling.

“I’m sorry for Chris, he fell yesterday and today, but that’s also part of
cycling,” he said.

Although the day went almost perfectly for Nibali — he did at one point
come off his bike when a teammate skid off the rode in front of him on a bend
– he insisted he wouldn’t get too excited by the gap to his rivals.

“It’s a good advantage over Contador but there’s a long way to go to Paris.
I have to stay calm and have a good race and a good strategy for the coming
stages.”

Froome was one of the first riders to fall but there were crashes all over
the slippery wet roads during the first half of the race.

Van Garderen, Valverde and sprinters Marcel Kittel, who won three of the
first four stages, Alexander Kristoff and Andre Greipel all went down.

There were fewer crashes once the peloton hit the cobbles but that’s when
the splits started.

Talansky and Jurgen Van den Broeck were caught out on one cobbled section
and lost touch with Nibali’s group.

Contador had lost ground on the first cobbled section and by the end of the
second he was already more than a minute behind, while Valverde and Van
Garderen had to chase back just to join his group due to their earlier crashes.

Up front an early breakaway was caught 28km from home, its numbers having
been whittled down from nine to four.

The new lead group got smaller with every cobbled section.
Boom’s teammate Sep Vanmarcke punctured while Nibali broke free with two
teammates.

Boom rode back to them and then attacked on the final cobbles, using his
strength to ride away to victory.

“I was smiling already this morning when I looked outside and saw rain,” he
said.

“It was important for me because my contract ends this year and for the
team because we’ve lost our sponsor (for next year).

“It was a special day and a heroic day to see, especially with the rain and
cobbles and mud.”

Nibali wilted a little in the end as Boom disappeared into the distance but
Fuglsang shepherded him to the line to keep gaining time on his rivals.
