The down side of the riders being more relaxed and having time to chat is that they are a little less focused. Remember that there are roughly 200 cyclist riding along all sorts of roads, most that they have never seen before, and it just takes a swerve, a quick tap of the brakes or a momentary loss of balance to cause a massive pile up. Stage 6 saw its share of wrecks, fortunately none too severe. These are the riders behind the crash desperately trying to get stop before they pile on to the twisted legs, wheels and handlebars.
