BY foxsports • September 4, 2016

A number of cyclists were involved in a shocking accident at high speed Sunday when a spectator pulled a barrier across the road, causing riders to flip over.

According to local journalist Antoine Forestier, the man who brought down the barrier was the father of a rider who had been involved in a crash earlier in the race. 

The incident occurred during the Tour Cycliste Antenne Reunion, held on a small French island called Reunion off the east coast of Madagascar.
