- Bardet says MRI scans revealed brain haemorrhage
Rider safety came the forefront of the Tour after it was revealed Romain Bardet, concussed after crashing at speed on Friday, may have finished the stage to Puy Mary suffering from what the rider called a “small brain haemorrhage”.
Bardet, who had started stage 13 in fourth place overall, left the race that evening due to concussion and underwent MRI scans on Saturday morning. “I’m still having nausea and headaches,” Bardet wrote on social media, “and the MRI performed this morning confirmed a small haemorrhage from the concussion.”
