Giro d’Italia Highlights: Chris Froome 37 seconds back on Tom Dumoulin after Stage 1

Chris Froome finished 37 seconds back from defending champion Tom Dumoulin in the opening stage of the 101st Giro d’Italia on Friday in Jerusalem.

But Froome had a crash in a training run where he landed on his hip after losing his front wheel in a corner and placed 21st on the day.

The 32-year-old Brit won last year’s Tour de France and Vuelta a Espana. If Froome wins the Giro, he’d become only the third person ever to win the three titles in a row. 

Froome said, “It’s not ideal to race just after having a crash, but that’s bike racing and it’s all part of the sport,” according to the BBC.

Dumoulin finished two seconds ahead of Rohan Dennis. 

The top five finishers were: 

1. Tom Dumoulin (Ned/Sunweb) 12mins 02secs

2. Rohan Dennis (Bel/BMC Racing) +02secs

3. Victor Campenaerts (Bel/Lotto-Soudal) Same time

4. Jose Goncalves (Spa/Katusha) +12secs

5. Alex Dowsett (GB/Katusha) +16secs

The second leg of the race is from Haifa to Tel Aviv.
