Watch: Horror moment Quick-Step rider crashes over barrier with 30ft drop below at Il Lombardia

Laurens De Plus crash

A terrifying crash from Laurens De Plus has overshadowed the final one-day classic of the cycling season, Il Lombardia.

On the descent towards Lake Como some 40km from home, De Plus crashed after taking a corner badly. The Belgian couldn’t stop himself from tumbling over the top of a barrier and falling into the void almost 10-metres below. Fortunately, he managed to land on a grassy part of the ground below and somehow walked away relatively unhurt.
