Matvey Mamykin has taken a nasty fall on today’s queen stage of Tirreno-Adriatico. The 22-year-old Russian was ahead of the peloton when his rear wheel slid out on a tight left-hand bend.
He crashed hard onto the tarmac and slid across the road before hitting the roadside barrier. His speed took him under the barrier and off the side of the road.

Mamykin recovered quickly with the help of a spectator and was back on the road before being caught by the peloton.
