A video has captured the moment that a large number of the Tour of Oman peloton were upended by a flooded section of road.
The crash happened as the riders negotiated a stream which ran across the road. Amongst those to come down in the crash were Romain Bardet (AG2R) and the Team Sunweb pair of Roy Curvers and Mike Teunissen.
There were no serious injuries reported, but it did slow things up for a while allowing the lead group on the road to extend their lead.
