Vuelta a Burgos riders angry after speed bump sparks mass crash

Jumbo-Visma led the Vuelta a Burgos at full speed towards the sprint finish of stage 2 in Villadiego only to have their sprinter David Dekker crash and bring down a large part of the peloton when he lost control because of an elevated crosswalk, or speed bump, with 500 meters to go.

Not long after, Timo Roosen, Edoardo Affini and Chris Harper crossed the line for a Jumbo-Visma podium sweep but there was little to celebrate as dozens of riders behind were scattered across the road. All but 13 riders were given the same time as the stage winner because the fall was in the last 3km.
