The sequence is chilling.

Alexey Lutsenko (Astana Qazaqstan) posted the video of a training session on Instagram.

Landed on a time trial bike, the Kazakh rides downhill in Teide, Spain.

A gust of wind made him swerve and throw him violently to the ground, dragging down his teammate Samuele Battistella.

Alexey Lutsenko will recover with a broken collarbone.

"

It's cycling, sometimes you fall, sometimes you win

," he wrote, philosophically.

After the fall of Egan Bernal (Ineos), in January in Colombia, Chris Froome (Israel - Premier Tech), his former teammate (who had suffered a serious accident in May 2019 during the recognition of a counter- la-montre on the Dauphiné Libéré) had hammered home: "

How many roads do you know near you, where you can ride for an hour in suitable conditions?

Given the dangers, wouldn't it be much easier to do time trials on road bikes?

We put a lot of money into it, especially in training, when it can be dangerous, and we continue anyway... Frankly, I'll tell you again, but my son, I'm not particularly in a hurry for him to do bicycle races.

And I don't want him to have a career today, it's too dangerous.

If I, who am in the business, come to think that, it is not good for our sport…
