Two large crashes mar Tour de France

Spanish veteran Joaquim Rodriguez won the crash-marred third stage of the Tour de France on Monday, with British rider Chris Froome finishing second to take the race leader's yellow jersey. Just as cyclists were beginning to make their move to the front of the pack on Stage 3, a rub of tires creates a chain reaction on two parts of the road resulting in massive crashes. The crash happened with a little under 60 kilometers (37 miles) remaining, forcing the stage to be neutralized and then stopped altogether shortly after - for nearly 20 minutes - while organizers allowed those who fell to catch up.
