New Zealander George Bennett did well to stay upright on the final climb of today’s Tour de France stage.

The LottoNL-Jumbo rider was rounding a bend on the climb to Arcalis when he shouldered a spectator who was standing on the road.

The spectator fell whilst Bennett was forced to go wide but managed to avoid falling on the slippy surface. The incident follows on from the clash between an over-enthusiastic spectator and Chris Froome on yesterday’s stage.

The Tour organsiers have this evening once again asked spectators to show respect to the riders as they posted the following message:

“⚠ The Tour de France is a great event, please respect the riders ⚠”
