Crash during Stage 2, Chongming Island

Monia Baccaille
As expected, Stage 2 finished with a bunch sprint - they all do on the pancake-flat island - with Monia Baccaille (MCipollini-Giambenini-Gauss) taking the honours and the GC leadership after a crash split the bunch. According to reports, an unspecified number of riders were taken to hospital with suspected broken collarbones. Evgenia Romanyuta (RusVelo) was airlifted to hospital, raising worries that she may be badly injured.

Chloe Hosking (Specialized-Lululemon) was second and Shelly Olds (AA-Drink third. Baccaille now leads the General Classification by 3" and AA takes the Team classification leadership from MCipollini-Giambenini-Gauss with an advantage of 7".
