Cob­ble­stone mess

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

Sch­leck crit­i­cized race or­ga­niz­ers for their de­ci­sion to use daunt­ing cob­ble­stone sec­tions this month, mak­ing the de­mand­ing course even tougher.

Sev­eral rid­ers crashed dur­ing the early stages, in­clud­ing Sch­leck’s brother Frank, who had to pull out last week be­cause he broke his col­lar­bone while fall­ing on the cob­bles.

“It’s too dan­ger­ous. It’s my brother who fell, but that’s not why I’m say­ing it,” Sch­leck said. “It was my opin­ion be­fore the Tour, and it still is.”
