Blazin' Saddles

Spectator falls down hill while watching the Giro

Terrifying descents are part and parcel of Grand Tours but it is usually only the cyclists that have to worry about them.

However, one poor fan watching the 10th stage of the Giro D'Italia went crashing out of site on a descent of his own after losing his footing by the side of the road.

The stage turned out to be a bittersweet day for Team Sky in the Friulian mountains as Bradley Wiggins lost more time to his rivals after Colombian team-mate Rigoberto Uran soloed to victory.

The Giro d'Italia continues on Wednesday with the 183km stage 11 from Tarvisio to Vajont - a mountainous but less demanding affair which should favour a breakaway.
