Thibaut Pinot struck in face in feed zone collision with Trek-Segafredo soigneur

A Trek-Segafredo soigneur handing a musette to a team rider was in the path of FDJ-Groupama’s Thibaut Pinot and consequently struck the former third-place Tour de France finisher in the face.

Pinot suffered a run of bad luck in today’s stage 8, as he came off his bike with little over 40km remaining. He had not long remounted before he ran into trouble in the feed zone and was struck in the face – being so visibly shaken that he took a moment to embrace a nearby EF Education-EasyPost communications director Matthew Beaudin.
