The Future is Binary – Mark Cavendish is out of the Tour de France after he dislocated his shoulder and suffered ligament damage in a crash near the end of stage one in Yorkshire.
The Briton, 29, collided with Simon Gerrans during the sprint in Harrogate, which was won by Marcel Kittel.
Cavendish, who is joint third on the list of most Tour stage wins with 25, admitted he was to blame.
“It was my fault, I’ll apologise to Simon,” he said. “I tried to find a gap that was not there. I wanted to win.”
The Manxman, who rides for Omega Pharma – Quick-Step, spent several minutes on the floor before being helped back on to his bike and riding to the finish line, watched by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Cavendish had been among the favourites to win the stage, which would have seen him wear the leader’s yellow jersey for the first time.
Sunday’s second stage runs 201km from York to Sheffield and features around 3,000m of climbing, spread across nine categorised ascents.Cavendish goes to ground during the sprint finishCavendish lies inured as an Omega Pharma – Quick-Step team-mate looks over himThe Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry applaud Cavendish as he rides over the finish line
