Amgen Tour of California, Stage 4: Morabito Crashes

20. May 2010

Modesto, California

Alexander Kristoff finished sixth after crashing Wednesday, while two other BMC Racing Team riders also went down in pile-ups on Stage 4 of the Amgen Tour of California.

Collision Near The Finish

Most seriously hurt was Steve Morabito, the team's best-placed rider overall (19th, 27 seconds behind). Another rider collided with him inside the final two kilometers and he bruised his right elbow and hip. "I tried to remain in the front on the circuit to stay out of trouble," Morabito said. "But the guy in front of me hit a hole or something and rolled over. I tried to avoid him, but it was on the edge of the road." Kristoff and Simon Zahner also crashed in a pile-up with 30 km left, but neither was seriously hurt.
