BMC rider run over by car
Peyragudes - Swiss BMC rider Michael Schar was run over by the doctor's car and sustained cuts and bruises during the 17th stage of the Tour de France cycle race on Thursday, his team said.
The incident occurred on the ascent to the Port de Bales 110km into the stage, Tour organisers said in a statement.
"Schar has minor cuts on his right knee and an elbow injury that will need further evaluation," team doctor Max Testa was quoted as saying in a BMC statement.
