A roadside spectator appeared to step out in front of Bennett as he was riding up the final Arcalis climb and rounding a corner.
Bennett attempted to swerve around the spectator, but instead engaged them with his shoulder, causing them to fall to the ground.
Somehow, Bennett managed to stay upright throughout the whole incident.
On Saturday, Chris Froome (Sky) clashed with an over-enthusiatic fan, pushing them away – he was subsequently fined 200 CHF by the UCI race jury for the incident.
