Yet another incident has taken place today involving a race vehicle at a bike race whereby a mechanic was knocked over by a team car at the Tour of Flanders.
The incident took place following a crash in the peloton whereby numerous mechanics had been attending fallen riders. An Etixx-Quick Step car then collided with one of the mechanics, pushing him to the ground.
The mechanic then seems to be trapped under the front of the car and bangs on the bonnet to grab the attention of the driver. It’s unclear at this stage as to whether the mechanic has been injured.
Once again, it highlights the dangers involving race vehicles.
