Tour de France Rider Collides with Road Barrier — Splits Bike in Pieces

Team Sunweb’s Tiesj Benoot had a close shave during stage 4. The 26-year-old Belgian was part of the early escape group, as they were flying downhill  he hit a roadside barrier and skidded along it until his saddle snapped off and he flew head-over-heels into a field, escaping without a scratch. Benoot went on to finish the stage in 117th place, 16 minutes behind stage winner Primoz Roglic.
