Anyone know if that Jose Enrique Gutierrez was the same Kelme rider that caused Cipo to crash out to the Giro this year? Thanks.
Some say that a Cofidis rider caused today's crashgeeker

Supposedly Mederic Clain zig-zagged into the Kelme rider, though accounts vary.

Bad weather and a poorly designed finish with a left turn just 160 meters from the finish line served up a messy conclusion for the 11th stage, with Mario Cipollini (Domina Vacanze) crashing out after Kelme's Isaac Galvez slid into him.

I found it on cyclingnews.com..."Kelme's Isaac Galvez took out Mario Cipollini and five other riders with a bad move on the inside."
Broken Collarbone. Is Hamilton out? nmDaddylonglegs

I was pulling from the stoplight line in heavy vehiclular traffic at a multi-intersection junction that has 3 lights in the space of 1/4 mile. You need to reach 25-30mph pretty quick to make all 3. At maybe 18mph, my cleat popped up, then my foot went down into the pavment and the crank spun round and smacked the back of my leg. I recovered, but I can see how a faster rider in a crowded situation would not have. I still made the lights- good thing, since a rear end from an SUV would hurt more than another rider. :-)

DAMN those guys are fast. The TDF level ground sprints beat my top downhill speeds!
