Fan captures Sky rider crash at the Tour of Britain

Video of Sky's Sebastian Henao crashing into metal barrier after misjudging corner at Tour of Britain

Team Sky rider Sebastian Henao took a spectacular crash into a metal barrier at the Tour of Britain on Thursday, close to the finish of stage five in Exeter, after coming into a corner a bit too hot.

One fan managed to capture whole thing on their phone from an angle which you couldn't have chosen better, as Henao steams round the corner and straight towards the camera.

Fortunately, the young Colombian, who is in his first year with Team Sky, managed to get up relatively unhurt and after a bike change, finished the stage and is due to continue on stage six to Hemel Hempstead on Friday. Henao will be looking to help Sir Bradley Wiggins climb up the general classification in the last three stages of this year's race, as he continues his defence of the Tour of Britain title.
