Giro d'Italia: Dumoulin bid dented by call of nature
An unexpected toilet break left Tom Dumoulin with a much reduced lead in the 2017 Giro d'Italia on Tuesday afternoon.
Tom Dumoulin's progress in the Giro d'Italia came to an unexpected halt during stage 16, as he stopped on the side of the road for an impromptu toilet break.
Dumoulin forced to make unscheduled pit stop
Dumoulin went into Tuesday's stage 2 minutes and 41 seconds clear at the top of the Giro's general classification, but found himself playing catch-up on his challengers after he got off his bike to relieve his apparent discomfort.
The Dutchman stripped down his kit in order to answer the call of nature, but his stoppage proved to be a particularly untimely one.
