WATCH: Tour de France riders $12k bike SPLITS IN HALF during crash
Team Ineos rider Gianni Moscon saw his bike snap in half as he was involved in a collision during Stage Eight of the Tour de France on Saturday.
Moscon was involved in a smash with Canada's Michael Woods from the EF Education First team around 15km (9 miles) from the finish line on the 230km route from Macon to Saint-Etienne.
The hit, which happened on a tight turn, also took out Moscons teammate and defending champion Geraint Thomas.
Footage shared by Ineos showed Moscon standing next to his Pinarello Dogma F12 bike, which has been snapped apart.
Within 15km there is a crash involving Team INEOS riders, with @GeraintThomas86, @GianniMoscon & @Kwiato going down. A quick bike change and @WoutPoels puts a strong effort in to bring @GeraintThomas86 back to the pelotonpic.twitter.com/xft8AcEDZE
