Ben Swift’s amazing Tour of Britain crash avoidance (video)

Team Sky rider makes the perfect dismount to avoid falling at the Tour of Britain

We still can’t quite believe how Sky’s Ben Swift did not come down in this Tour of Britain – but his mightily quick reactions are probably one reason.

Swift’s Sky team-mate Geraint Thomas posted this fan-shot video, taken from the roadside during stage six from Bath to Hemel Hempstead, onto his Facebook last night.

Watch out for a Bardiani-CSF rider, who sits in eighth wheel in the peloton, who causes the crash and forces Swift to take evasive action.
