Video: Tour de France Flamme Rouge Crash

Each year the Tour de France seems to have at least one memorable off-the-wall moment and this year that moment may just be the collapse of the Flamme Rouge Kite with one K to go.

Watch as Orica-BikeExchange’s Adam Yates races toward the finish only to be taken out by the collapse of the  inflatable banner at the precise moment that he rode under it.  Despite crashing and injuring his chin, Yates earned the white jersey.
