VIDEO: Katusha rider slides under barrier at Tirreno-Adriatico
Matvey Mamykin from Katusha had a bizarre crash on the Queen stage of Tirreno-Adriatico. The 22-year-old Russian rider was trying to stay ahead of the peloton in the closing kilometres.
His back wheel went from under him and he hit the road pretty hard and slid across the apex of a bend, into the roadside barrier so quickly he shot underneath it and down into a ditch.
Luckliy Mamykin was ok and with the help of a spectator, was back on his bike still maintaining his lead over the peloton.
