Tour de Suisse overall leader Egan Bernal (Team Ineos) survived a nasty scare when his back wheel slipped on a sharp corner during the penultimate stage eight time trial.
“It was frightening, yes,” said Bernal after the race. His Ineos teammates Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas have suffered bad falls in the past two weeks.
His hopes of victory in the Tour de Suisse were nearly ruined, as the Colombian went into a corner and nearly lost control of his bike, his back wheel kicking out as Bernal just about managed to stay upright.
