Photographer apologises to McLay for finish crash

by CyclingTips

British sprinter Dan McLay, who won the sprint finish at the Trofeo Palma on Sunday, crashed into a photographer just after the line. However, he said the photographer has since apologised to him for the incident.

“I would like to say that the photographer has personally apologised to me, and I accept this and can leave it behind,” McLay said on Twitter.

“It was a mistake which can be avoided with better organisation in the future but all parties are ok except for a few scrapes so all ok!”

McLay won in a bike throw ahead of Matteo Pelucchi (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis) with Pelucchi raising his arms thinking he had won.
