Marlen Reusser suffered a concussion in a crash during stage 6 of the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift and will not start stage 7 tomorrow.

The team SD Worx rider crashed with 22 kilometers to go and remounted to finish the stage 15 minutes after winner Marianne Vos. A hospital examination later revealed the head injury.

It’s a disappointing way for the 30-year-old Swiss rider to end the Tour, but she leaves as the winner of stage 4.
