Giro d'Italia - 'Unforgivable, absolute shocker' - Crazy moment team car drives into Pieter Serry
Stage 6 of the 2021 Giro d'Italia served up plenty of dramatic moments as riders had to battle in ferocious crosswinds and brutal conditions, but by far the most shocking incident came when a Team BikeExchange car drove into the back of Deceuninck–Quick-Step's Pieter Serry and floored the Belgian rider in a truly unbelievable moment.

"Look at it now: they are twisting and turning! This is horrible weather. It's coming from one side and the riders are sheltering. They are going to lose more time here.
"Just look at this weather. There are strong crosswinds on the climb."

Sean Kelly added: "You can see that the road is absolutely waterlogged. In these conditions you have to just hang in there but this can really cause problems."
The first mountain finish of the Giro on Thursday brought two climbs preceding the final rise to San Giacomo, above the town of Ascoli Piceno, with a total of 3,627 metres of climbing.
