The motorcyclists are often riding pillion with a camera man on the back to take great shots for those watching on TV or online.  However there appears to be many dangers involved in riding so close to the riders that accidents are likely to happen or at least near misses.

So happened therefore, not to a camera crew but a police motorcycle in the Giro d’Italia this on the ninth stage which was won by Nairo Quintana.

It was the police motorcyclist that caused Mr Adam Yates & Geraint Thomas to crash on their bikes and suffered significant time losses.

Non-Fatal Motorbike Crash

It is said that the non fatal motorbike accident occurred when the police motorcycle had pulled to the left side of the road the riders were on, heading towards the the ascent of Blockhaus.

The police rider hit a stationary bike and bumbled, wiping out many of the Team Sky cycling squad.

Thankfully only minor injuries were sustained but Thomas’s wife tweeted: ‘Months of training/sacrifices down the drain. but he gets back up, finishes and stops for the media…I could not be prouder.’

We wish all our UK riders the best of luck and injury and crash free rides.
