Martin vows to fight on in Tour de France despite fractured collarbone - Race leader hoping to continue in yellow jersey
X-rays have confirmed that Tony Martin fractured his left collarbone during the fall in the finale of stage 6 to Le Havre but the German rider is refusing to quit the Tour de France, hoping he can continue despite the fracture and the pain. After completing x-rays in the mobile medial unit, Martin tweeted: “Collarbone is broken. We will discuss further steps.” His Etixx-QuickStep team confirmed the news via Twitter but did not specify if Martin will be able to continue in the Tour de France. It is not clear if his team doctor or race medical staff will allow him to start Friday’s stage. Martin crashed at the foot of the climb to the finish in Le Havre after touching the rear wheel of a Europcar rider. The bump caused him to swerve into Giant-Alpecin's Warren Barguil, who in turn knocked Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) over. Nairo Quintana (Movistar) was unable to avoid the fallen riders and he too crashed, while Chris Froome (Sky) narrowly avoided the pile of fallen riders. Martin immediately held his arm as if his collarbone was fractured but made it to the finish of the stage thanks to several teammates pushing him up the hill. Martin was given the same time as the leaders because the crash occurred inside the final three kilometres, and so kept the yellow jersey. It was a bittersweet moment for the Etixx-QuickStep team because Zdenek Stybar soloed to stage victory. Martin explained what caused the crash after struggling to pull on the yellow jersey on the podium. "I touched the back wheel of a Europcar rider. It was stressful like always. I can’t really remember but as usual with crashes when they are not at high speed, normally the injuries are the worst," he said.
