The squad criticizes the lack of security in Bessèges

The first two stages of the French event have been marked by falls that have caused injuries like Valgren's. "It was shit on arrival," says Pedersen.

The Star of Bessèges aimed to be one of the great events of cycling in the middle of the sea of racing suspensions, although the French event has also generated numerous doubts in the peloton as a result of the falls that have taken place in the first two stages of the test.

In the first stage, the Danish Michael Valgren had to abandon with several fractures in his hand due to a fall and in the second stage the presence of a roundabout in the final section of the route that caused many runners to fall to the ground.

One of those who saved the fall was the Danish Trek-Segafredo Mads Pedersen, who at the end of the stage was resounding about what happened. "It was a shitty arrival for a good day at the sprint. I think I could have achieved a good result and I was in a good position. I'm happy I didn't fall, many cyclists reached the finish line with their clothes torn," he said in statements collected by Cylingnews.

The crash at the roundabout was not the only one that took place in the final stretch of the stage, since four kilometers from the finish line another crash caused cyclists like Ethan Hayter or Danny Van Poppel to crash.
