Romain Bardet and James Shaw became the fourth and fifth to abandon stage 14 of the Tour de France after the French all-rounder and British Tour debutant crashed early on the stage.

TV pictures showed DSM-Firmeneich leader Bardet, then third-class Colonel de Saxel, swooping down and helping him to his feet as he was swept from the day’s opening climb. The Frenchman is said to have injured his knee and elbow.
