"I was moving to the right after an attack, I didn't see it on my right side, unfortunately," Jungels said. I must have hit his front wheel and yes I am really very sorry to hear that he is out of the race due to that accident. I do not know what to say.
Moving aside to make a cyclist come forward is something we often do. I'm very sorry that you did something wrong, it's very unfortunate "
Higuita managed to rejoin and get on the bike after the incident, but then crashed again shortly after, and was forced to abandon the race.
