WTF did he hit there to cause that? Fair play for getting up, dusting himself off, taking a bow and carrying on. That's fairly hardcore.

He didn’t hit anything. His Dura-Ace caliper brakes were strong enough to put him over the bars at that speed.

That looked like it hurt. Amazing that he avoided serious injury.

I’m sure it hurt like the bejeezus after he got to the finish. Iirc, it was in the final km, so he only had to roll down the finishing straight, and I’d say the adrenalin at that point was up to 90. I’m amazed he was as calm as he was getting back on. Even stopping to get his sunglasses back.

Looks like he locked the rear wheel after misjudging the radius of the turn, then the front hit the lip of the asphalt patch. Worst feeling in the world when you're halfway over the bars not knowing exactly how you're going to land of what you're going to hit.
