While incurring no serious injury and health problems, cyclist Alexander Contador is thoroughly angered at his late crash at the recent vuelta a espana.
The Spaniard was left with a series of bruises, scrapes and cuts. He was reported to have no broken bones. Contador had suffered a serious crash in the event that he believed was caused by another rider.
The first indication that things were going awry with Contador in the race was at around the end of the 7th stage where he had been at the lead of the pack with the others in hot pursuit behind him, a tinkoff staff had just emerged at the roundabout along puebla de sanabria waiting for the cyclist.
When in an unfortunate twist of events, Contador who had been in the lead up to the final kilometer did not appear in the group of riders coming through. The explanation for his absence and eventual loss was provided to his disappointed fans just a few minutes later as a wrecked Contador came crossing the finish line.
Coming late behind the favorites, Contador emerged with the left side of his outfit ripped and shredded, his kit torn and bloodied. And as he made his way through the anxious and questioning fans, he was followed in hot pursuit by radio reporters and unrelenting camera crews.
The visibly furious sports man stopped a few meters after he had crossed the line and said:
“I was really well positioned, but suddenly somebody who doesn’t like using their brakes pulled across and I went down. Right now my left side is cut up, so is my calf. Things are getting really complicated.”
He then proceeded to pedal on and in an unexpected fit of rage; he pulled out a Bidon and threw it to the ground.
