Watch: Big crash in one-day race due to road furniture 50m before finish line

The obstacle was situated right in the middle of the final corner

With European racing returning after the break, excitement and nerves are expected in all corners of the sport, from fans brimming with anticipation to riders ready to salvage the season albeit under a cloud of coronavirus concerns.

There's enough danger in the peloton amidst a global pandemic without inopportune road furniture, something clearly lost on the organisers of GP Kranj, a Slovenian one-day race.

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.
