Not in general, just this years race.
So far we have had Froome, Contador, Cavendish, Zandio and Frank all with broken bones plus quite a few other riders abandon such as Clement after hitting his head hard.
Its been 10 days of hard cycling and the weather hasn't helped either. Has the parcours been wrong or is it "just one of those things that happens" ?
Is the race worth serious injury or is there to much at stake for teams now that sponsorship is starting to dry up and they have to be seen at the front pushing hard.
