crash - Tour de France 2023: Withdrawalsfoto: Cor VosThe 110th Tour de France set off with 176 contestants and 22 teams. Since 26 of them pulled out during the race only 150 riders reached Paris.

Enric Mas and Richard Carapaz abandoned the Tour de France after crashing on the same corner in the descent of Côte de Vivero. The Olympic Champion remounted and reached the finish, only to find out after tests that his left knee had been fractured. Mas did not continue with a fractured scapula, so he was the first rider to abandon the 2023 Tour de France.

Mark Cavendish hit the deck in stage 8 and pulled out with a shoulder injury.

The first riders left last year’s Tour de France in stage 5, which was a race with eleven cobbled sectors. Jack Haig, Michael Gogl and Daniel Oss were the first victims. They all crashed out of contention immediately, while Primoz Roglic pushed on until stage 15 before he decided to stop his efforts.
