George Bennett has reflected on a crazy incident that saw four Jumbo-Visma riders crash during Stage 1 of La Vuelta.

Jumbo-Visma suffered the remarkable crash involving half their team during the opening time trial of the 2019 Vuelta.

GC contenders Primoz Roglic and Steven Kruijswijk were among those who went down in the group collision, which Eurosport commentator Carlton Kirby described as a "disaster".

What appeared to be a wet patch of road brought down four of the team members at a tight corner and Bennett could hardly believe it.
