Colin Heiderscheid pulled an absolute jerk move after a crash in a sprint

Crash at Tour de Communes

The finish of Le Tour de 100 Communes was marred by a crash in the final metres, but Colin Heiderscheid made a bad situation worse when he lost his temper. Jonathan Vervenne (Soudal – Quick-Step Devo Team) won the the 176.2 km race in Béthune, France in a very exciting finale. The 19-year-old Belgian managed to outfox the sprinters, finishing a second ahead of the charging pack. Jérémy Lecroq (Philippe Wagner Cycling) won the sprint for second, but as soon as he crossed, there was carnage. Several riders fell in the gallop to the line.

The 25-year-old rider from Leopard TOGT Pro Cycling grabbed another rider’s bike, lifting it up and smashing it down on the asphalt. On Cycling Twitter ™, many were calling for the rider to have to pay for any damages to the bike, or be sanctioned by his team for unsportsmanlike behaviour.
