In the final sprint on the finish line in Rome, the last stage of the Giro d'Italia, Pascal Ackermann loses control of his bike and crashes into billboards

In addition to the beautiful victory of Mark Cavendish
(fifteen years elapsed between the first and last success in the Giro by the British), the final sprint on the finish line Rome — last stage of Giro d'Italia 2023 — also stands out for the maxi fall that involved Pascal Ackermann, a German road cyclist from the UAE Emirates. The latter, in fact, in trying to change direction during the sprint to slip in front of Milan and behind Alberto Dainesehe touched one of the two bikes and ended up on the ground, bumping into billboards and causing other runners to fall.

However, it was he who got the worst, getting up thanks to the help of his companions and crossing the finish line with a very suffering face. As well as with his left arm covered in blood and various abrasions along his back. Fortunately
only the uniform broke, literally ripped open. No fractures for Ackermann, as explained by the person concerned to the journalists present.
