Incredible Video: Watch the moment when the inflatable banner hits Adam Yates

Adam Yates took a heavy fall as the Flamme Rouge fell at just the wrong moment when the British rider attacked from the peloton.

A spectator accidentally caused the crash in the closing kilometer of stage 7 when he caught his belt on a cable that helped to keep the inflatable flamme rouge upright. “A spectator came too close to the structure and with his belt he caught it on the cable,” said ASO’s Philippe Sudres.
