Evenepoel crashes as stray dog runs into Giro peloton (video)


The Giro d’Italia entered in the 5th stage under heavy rain and the scare of Remco Evenepoel’s crash.

Only 22km into the stage, there was suddenly panic within Soudal Quick-Step teams as the world champion was involved in a fall caused by a stray dog. Davide Ballerini was the first to hit the ground and took Evenepoel with him in his fall.

Evenepoel remained down for a couple of minutes, but he finally got back on his bike and was then brought back to the peloton by his teammates.

After his fall, the Belgian gave a gaudy a thumbs up sign to the television cameras.
