Serry was understandably left absolutely livid, and Dan Lloyd and Hannah Walker gave their expert reactions on The Breakaway.
"It's just awful to see. I don't know where the driver was looking, but it was anywhere but the road!" Walker said on the Eurosport show.
"It looked like he went down very hard there and you can understand the irate reaction. I think for that to happen, it is completely inexcusable. The road is still open and you have got to be so aware of what is going on."
"The wind is blowing here - it's like a team time-trial!" exclaimed Rob Hatch, on commentary for Eurosport.
This is dangerous! Not just for the pink jersey but look at all those having to chase. It's all kicking off!
