It is still unknown whether Ryder Hesjedal will begin the Tour de France. Team doctors are accessing his condition since crashing out of the Tour de Suisse. Nervous time for Garmin-Sharp and for his legion of supporters. I'm crossing my fingers that he does start in Corsica and to get back to his brilliant self.

Cycle racing is full of unpredictability and accidents often happen. It's amazing that given the proximity of riders, accidents like this don't happen more often.
