Jean-Christophe Péraud: It's only a broken collarbone...

interview17.07.2013Stage 17- Embrun / Chorges

He crashed before the 17th stage and raced with a small fracture to his right collarbone and then Jean-Christophe Peraud crashed again... but he's not too fussed: he's out of the Tour while in ninth overall and already looking at what his next objective might be.

"It was is not the fracture that crippled me going around the turn. I did not feel like taking risks, I went down doing what I could do, but I was surprised myself by this turn where I crashed. This is part of the sport. I am in good health and it's only a broken collarbone. It will be a relief to get home, and then we will aim for another objective when my body recovers.”
