A roadside spectator filmed the chaotic result of team cars taking a wrong turn during stage six of the Tour of Britain on Saturday.
As the peloton passed through the roundabout in Norwich in the right direction, a cavalcade of team cars then come to the junction and head straight on instead of turning left.
A Tinkoff-Saxo car is the first to take the wrong turn with others following, including several dropped riders mixed up in the cars.
As drivers realise their mistake, instead of carrying on around the roundabout several decide to do a U-turn or reverse back - straight into the path of oncoming traffic. Some of the cars subsequently travel up the wrong side of the carriageway and over the central reservation.
Cue beeping of horns and spectators shouting "you're going the wrong way!".
The few riders caught up in the mishap quickly realise the mistake and find the correct route, it's easier for a bike to turn around than a large, fully-laden estate car.
"This video was taken by my partner on Halfords roundabout in Norwich. It's so funny on so many levels!" said YouTube user Lorna Jermyn who posted the clip online.
Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
