FRANCE — A huge crash at the Tour de France stage 3 briefly stopped the race Monday.

It seems as though one rider’s front tire hit another rider’s back tire, throwing 20 of the competitors to a gruesome tumble.

Fabian Cancellara fractured his spine.

While many others suffered some scrapes and bruises that will make you cringe, no one else reported serious injury.
