Chris Froome recovered from a pre-race crash with a muted performance in the Giro d'Italia's opening stage, a 9.7-kilometre individual time-trial, in which he lost 37 seconds to defending champion and stage victor, Tom Dumoulin.
Froome was pictured with a ripped jersey and shorts and cuts around his hip and right knee as his bike was repaired.
Team Sky said Froome was slightly injured but would compete in the opening time trial.
