A freak accident also happened on the Sunday of the Tour de France, a French cycling race.
A fan wanted to take a selfie while he was next to the peloton, resulting in several falls, a total of 20 people falling from their bikes.
From jumbo-wisma Sep Gus Selfie’s hand hit his steering wheel, after which the American fell. He drove his bike in the middle of the narrow road so that other people fell besides him. All the cyclists involved in the accident were able to continue the race. In any case, after the incident, the organizers and the Jumbo-Visma team also sent out a message to drivers: watch out for bikers.
The Maxi crash at the Tour de France was caused by a man on the side of the road filming it on his phone.
