Rigoberto Urán criticizes dangerous peloton behaviour: "We're crazy, we risk too much"

After abandoning Liège-Bastogne-Liège, being involved in the massive pile-up in the final 60 kilometers of the race, Rigoberto Urán took to social media to showcase his reaction towards the crash that led many to abandon alongside him, including several teammates.

In a video posted on Instagram, the Colombian showed several cuts and bruises on his body, alongside other teammates who were with him on the team bus after the finish. "Like this I finish Liège, the whole team blown up. A fuck crash eliminated us. Hard, hard, hard day. We were turnt into shit, the whole world was like this," he said.

"The pain I have in my back is amazing," the Colombian said ironically. "The cyclists so brave we are, we're crazy, we risk too much. Sometimes there are roads that are too narrow, at times we touch one, other we touch a different one," he said regarding the dangers in the proximity between the riders at high speed.

A touch of wheels between some riders near the head of the peloton took down dozens of riders at high-speed during yesterday's race, with Julian Alaphilippe having suffered a punctured lung, two broken ribs and a broken scapula being the worst affected. Many riders have talked about the accident in the meantime, with discussion ongoing between riders who were involved such as Tom Pidcock, Romain Bardet and Jérémy Cabot.
