I think that for most of the athletes as long as they haven’t suffered a significant mechanical injury that would prevent them from continuing to compete they will simply jump back into the race. Athletes have to have “selective amnesia” about events and refocus at the task at hand. In this case, completing the stage of the race and trying to make up lost time from the leaders. Crashes are an implied risk of the sport and if an athlete is so focused on not crashing or obsessing over a crash that occurred in the past it will hinder their overall performance and execution.
