Giro d'Italia

Quick-thinking Uran keeps Clarke out of canal

Rigoberto Urán's quick thinking saved teammate Simon Clarke from crashing into a canal in stage 11 of the Giro d'Italia.

Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.

We all know Rigoberto Urán is a versatile rider, but apparently the Cannondale captain has a knack for lifeguarding as well. His quick thinking saved teammate Simon Clarke from taking a swim in stage 11 at the Giro d’Italia after a big crash Wednesday.

Unfortunately, this video from CyclingHub.tv doesn’t quite capture the Colombian’s heroics, but Cannondale officials confirmed that Clarke’s tweet wasn’t just a joke. Clarke’s fellow Aussie, Leigh Howard of IAM, didn’t fare so well, ending up ankle-deep in the canal

Urán, who finished in the GC group, 13 seconds behind winner Diego Ulissi, had a laugh about the incident afterward. However, a few of his fellow competitors weren’t so lucky Wednesday. Ag2r’s Domenico Pozzovivo lost 1:30 to race leader Bob Jungels due to a crash, and Astana’s Valerio Agnoli broke the head of his radius bone and also required stitches. FDJ sprinter Arnaud Démare was also caught in the 40-rider pile-up, but X-rays did not reveal any broken bones for him.

Mijitos casi nos ponen a tirar baño!!!
