A woman from Waregem is in critical condition after being hit by a rider in an amateur race in Belgium last weekend. The rider went onto the bike path to get to the front of the peloton.
The woman was among the spectators on the side of the road, the Nieuwsblad.be reported. Both noticed each other, but tried to avoid the accident by going in the same direction.
Monday morning the woman was still in critical condition.
The upcoming KBC-Driedaagse De Panne-Koksijde often has similar kinds of situations.
