1KM banner crashes on cyclist at Tour De France
An inflatable promo arch collapsed onto the road just a kilometer away from the finish at stage seven of the Tour de France in the French Pyrenees, on Friday. British cyclist Adam Yates was right under it at the moment it felt down.
The collapsed banner not only affected Yates, but also blocked the way for the pack of cyclists a kilometer from the finish.

Riders chaotically tried to circumvent the arch to finish the race.
It was later reported that one of the fans caught his belt by the cable of generator that was supplying the air to the arch, which led to the collapse.
