Video: Panic as Jumbo-Visma team car stops for toilet break just as Roglic suffers mechanical

Awesome video of the moment of panic inside the Jumbo-Visma team car when Primož Roglič was hit by a mechanical during Stage 15 of the Giro d’Italia.

The Slovenian needed a bike change at 20km left to race, but his team car was nowhere in sight as the sports directors had stopped for a toilet break. The video footage above is from inside the car at the moment they realize their leader needs a fresh bike. Oops.

Roglič was forced to jump onto Antwan Tolhoek’s bike to fight his way back into the chase, but disaster struck again during the descent as he ran wide on a corner and crashed into a barrier. He eventually finished 40 seconds down on Giro d’Italia leader Richard Carapaz (Movistar).
