Patxi Villa, team leader at BORA Hansgrohe, saw it with dismay happen. He finds that riders are not concerned would have to worry about the safety during a team time trial. “The only thing the riders should do, is cycling. We watched from the truck and focusing on their performance. We can only hope that I would be safe but that was not the case here. A crash in this team time trial is áltijd scare. The riders can barely brake and give full gas. Fortunately, the riders, some scratches after, okay.”

“We were at full speed, everything was on a ribbon, the man without the left or right to see the crossed” said Gatto after the end. “We tried to brake, but then it was already too late. Majka rode full at the spectator, and I could not avoid him, so I'm against it as well. We drove about 60 kilometers per hour. How the spectator was? I've seen him move, but he was still down. This is not really the fault of the organization, that sort of thing is just difficult to control. The man clearly knew that he was somewhere where he shouldn't.”
