The UCI is investigating how a member of the public was able to drive onto the Il Lombardia course and hit Max Scachmann, leaving the German with a fractured collarbone.

"It is inadmissible to witness certain accidents in a WorldTour race," the CPA said afterwards. "We also want to know how the facts took place. Racing must be safer for athletes. We will never stop repeating it."

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
