I watched the first Tour stage. The final kilometers, half hour, were wild with crashes. Almost everyone hit the ground. I remember hearing the announcers talk about the speed bump. But did not rewind to watch it closely or pay attention to exactly what happened. So I can't confirm or deny your angle of the speed bump wrecking both wheels. Its easy to believe the speed bump caused riders to crash at 30 mph, and in the crash wheels were broken. But that is a little different from the speed bump itself breaking the wheels.

I'm waiting for additional explanation. The whole Movistar team is riding the same wheels, AFAIK, and it's not like Quintana -- all 128lbs -- presents that much of an impact load.

Yah, this year's TdF is a demolition derby. My son bought the streaming service, so he watches in the morning and then we all watch at night. Sagan's victory yesterday and his Yogi Berra-ish post race interview was worth the price of admission.

He went over the curbs with 55-60 km/hr at a spot were the road narrowed. He was not paying attention.

Laywer? Why? Pro riders don't have to pay for their wheels.

It's probably on cable, but I don't have cable, so the streaming is a nice service. You wonder what sort of impact the wheels sustained if Quintana didn't crash and simply rode over the curb or bump.

I though it was road furniture, he has a bit of a knack of this sort of
thing, the wheels weren’t Pringled from memory so presumably he rode over,
but wheels where cracked?
