The incident took place with around 17km remaining on the stage from Motril to Antequera as the riders ascended the Puerto del Torcal,the final climb of the stage.

Alberto Contador (Trek-Segafredo) had attacked off the front off the group of favourites and was rounding a left-hand bend when the crash occurred behind him.

As Contador climbed up the road a male spectator appears to be pushed across the road by a policeman, falling in front of the Shimano neutral service motorbike which was following the Spanish rider.

The motorbike then appears to clip the spectator and hit the ground, with the incident thankfully taking place at low speed with no one appearing to be hurt.

The motorbike was then moved to the side of the road, with the rest of the group of GC contenders making it past without incident.
