Antonio Tiberi has been, despite himself, one of the protagonists of the second stage of the United Arab Emirates Tour. The Italian cyclist was rushing the last ten meters before the finish line when, by surprise, he crashed to the ground.
The youngest runner in the race, just 19 years old, made the last effort of his performance in the time trial of the second day of the race In the Emirates, he was riding steady and well-attached on his bike, when he suddenly lost control of it and ended up crashing to the ground.
The inexplicable fall did not appear to be due to distraction but to some kind of mechanical failure and caused noticeable bruises to the Italian on the right side of his body.
What a bad luck! 🙄
