Mads Pedersen won the eighth stage of the Tour de France, which took place between Libourne and Limoges, 200 kilometers long, in which Jonas Vingegaard defended the lead and Egan Bernal is still the best Colombian, although he lost time.

Although it was a long day, very hot and flat terrain at the start and winding at the end, falls were the order of the day and the best Latino runner, Bernal, saved himself from them with strong support from the team.

One of the injured was Mark Cavendish, who fell and had to leave the competition, because the pain and injuries did not allow him to continue pedaling even if he wanted to.

The 38-year-old cyclist from the Isle of Man was running for the last time in the Tour with that objective, entering the legend a little more, but a fall 63 kilometers from Limoges, the goal of the day, when he was running at almost 45 kilometers per hour, ended his story in a race in which he has left an indelible mark.

Cavendish went to the ground along with other cyclists, such as the Spanish Pello Bilbao, and was unable to rejoin the race, with obvious gestures of pain in his left clavicle. Attended by the doctors on the asphalt, the rider was unable to rejoin the peloton.

With 6 kilometers to go, Simon Yates and other riders also crashed and he lost important time for the general classification, in which he was fourth. It was also reported that Mikel Landa fell in that same incident.

This Sunday, the ninth stage, Saint-Léonard-de-Noblat and Puy de Dôme, 182 kilometers long, with four mountain prizes, the last of them at the finish line and out of category.
