Many riders came down onto the tarmac during this year’s edition of E3 Harelbeke, and also into the fields on both sides of the road.

Marco Haller was left with carbon-fibre fragments in a wound in his left leg after a crash. Several riders’ bikes were snapped in half as a result of the crash, and the Katusha-Alpecin rider was forced to abandon the race after the incident.


The crash occurred in the race with just over 100km remaining. At the time of writing the racing was still underway.
