A) Joscelin Lowden crashed out of stage one following an incident with a race security motorbike, resulting in a fracture of her right clavicle.
B) Alex Paton was forced to abandon the Tour de Yorkshire following a collision with an oncoming car. The roads were opened up despite Tanfield and Paton being ahead of the broom wagon. Canyon-Eisberg lodged a complaint about the traffic on course and later received an apology from race organiser ASO.
I absolutely agree that the drive for cycling driven tourism should be matched by investment in safe cycling infrastructure. Went to Berlin a month ago and the whole city is covered by protected cycle ways.MartinGT said:It's only what most cyclists put up with everyday in Yorkshire anyways.
The crowds were huge everyone loving it. I went for a ride locally on Saturday the day after the race had been on the same roads and some old b@@tard tried pushing me off the road because I was in his way.
There was a great helicopter shot of the run in on Stage 1. Brand new housing development with brand spanking new roads. ZERO cycling infrastructure
