We don't cover as many cycling races in the Netherlands as we should. Everyone here takes a little blame for that, really. But this video more than justifies a write-up.
Admittedly, there's not much that your own eyes can't tell you. But the racer who takes the tumble is Loren Rowney of Australia and the spill dropped her down from second, maybe third, all the way to seventh place (which place she was in before the spill is really up to you). Plus she broke her collarbone. That's an all around shitty day.
We're not sure whether the interference was deliberate or not. But that just means we're not sure if this fan is a complete dickhead, or just really dumb.
Either way, the whole event is currently under investigation.
