SPA, BELGIUM — Tyler Farrar still is not quite sure what transpired Monday on a slippery road at the Tour de France that led to a fractured wrist and sprained elbow for the Wenatchee cyclist. “One minute I was riding down the descent and the next minute I was sliding. That was the first crash,” Farrar said in a statement released by his team, Garmin-Transitions, late Monday. “I got back up and started descending again and I have no idea what happened; all of the sudden my front wheel was gone and I was on the ground again. That’s the one where I knew something was very wrong. I rode the last 30 (kilometers) with one hand. I laid my left hand on the handlebars but that’s all I could do.”
