During the final stage of the Tour de Yorkshire a marshal had a lucky escape when Astana’s team car ploughed through a traffic island.
Footage of the incident shows the team cars following riders around a right hand bend at speed. A marshal is stood in the middle of a traffic island vigorously waving a yellow flag to warn of the obstacle when the vehicle ploughs straight on, forcing the marshal to leap out of the way, as shocked spectators looked on.
