VIDEO: Support Car Wipes Out U23 Finnish Rider in Bergen

Joni Kanerva, who was racing in the U23 World Championship Road Race in Bergen, Norway, fell badly on Friday when a support car ran into him

The collision occurred near the center of Bergen. Kanerva was between the service cars following the peloton.

What happened next was very unfortunate. The lead car stopped quickly to help another cyclist with a tire change. 

The car stopped so fast that the car behind made a quick manouver to avoid a collison, and went into the path of Kanerva.

Kanerva flew sideways from the force of the collision into barriers and crashed to the ground. The Finn was rushed to hospital.

Kjell Carlsröm, team leader of the Finnish cycling team interviewed by the Norwegian broadcaster NRK, says that Kanerva is stable. "The cervical clavicle and the ribs are broken. It was not nice to see your cyclist lying in that way in the country. I was scared, Calrström told the NRK."

The Finnish Cycling Federation confirmed that Kanerva is in hospital and that his condition is stable.

Additional information will be provided when available.
