The big favorite for the gold medal in mountain biking will not be titled.
Mathieu Van der Poel suffered an impressive crash early in the race.
The Dutchman made a sun with his bike and landed very severely on his back.
Grinning and stunned as he got back on his bike, VDP got off to a good start and is sailing more than a minute behind the leaders but he will not climb on the podium in the discipline.
