An incident involving a Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl team car and the peloton caused havoc at Brabantse Pijl today, with multiple riders, including their own rider Julian Alaphilippe, falling to the deck. 

With 21km to go and heading into the final lap, eight riders had created a breakaway group at the front of the race. Among them was Remco Evenepoel (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl), Ineos Greandiers riders Tom Pidcock, Ben Turner and Magnus Sheffield, Tim Wellens (Lotto Soudal), Benoît Cosnefroy (AG2R Citroën) and Warren Barguil (Arkéa Samsic), building a gap of a minute between themselves and the peloton.
