A roadside fan stepped in front of Clement Chevrier (IAM Cycling) on stage 20 of the Vuelta a España on Saturday, causing him to crash to the ground.
Chevrier was leading the chase group on the Puerto de Tudons climb with around 43km to go as a young spectator stepped out from the roadside, apparently to wave a flag at the camera and with his back to the riders.
The 24-year-old Frenchman had no option but to hit the fan, and crashed heavily to the ground – the spectator was also sent tumbling.
The riders behind Chevrier managed to ride around him, and there were no other riders involved.
Stage 20 is the final chance for the general classification riders to try and gain time overall before the race concludes in Madrid on Sunday. Nairo Quintana (Movistar) started stage 20 with a one minute 21 second lead over Chris Froome (Sky).
