Gilbert suffered a heavy fall on the descent of the Col de Portet-d'Aspet, where Fabio Casartelli crashed and died during the 1995 Tour.The 36-year-old Belgian locked up on a left-hand bend and flipped over a low stone wall into a ravine.
However, he climbed out and rode a further 60km to complete the stage.Gilbert has since been ruled out of resuming the Tour after a scan revealed he had sustained a fractured kneecap in the crash.
