Riders Johnny Hoogerland and Juan Antonio Flecha, part of a five-man breakaway battling for victory, were hit by Euro Media vehicle during the 208km stage from Issoire to Saint-Flour in the Massif Central on Sunday.

Despite nasty-looking injuries, Flecha and Hoogerland got back up to finish the stage, although they trailed home over 16 minutes off the pace.

Furious Tour de France organisers have thrown a French television car off the race.
