Two riders from the Bora-hansgrohe team crashed today at Tirreno-Adriatico when a pedestrian walked across the course in front of the team as they were taking part in the opening 21.5-kilometre team time trial at Lido di Camaiore.
The man was walking across the route on a pedestrian crossing just as the team passed and Rafal Majka collided with him with Oscar Gatto also being taken down.
The Bora-hansgrohe later provided an update on Twitter on the riders’ conditions stating: “Initial reports indicate that @gatto_oscar has sustained some bruising, while @majkaformal went down somewhat harder. Further testing will need to be done to evaluate their injuries. However, both riders finished the stage today.”
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport: “the spectator is conscious and was attended to by the paramedics attending the race and that his condition was not worrying.”
