Hoogerland crashed after Spanish rider Juan Antonio Flecha was hit by a car belonging to TV station France 2. The group of cyclists were on a narrow country road only 22 miles from the finish of a stage. After the collision both riders were able to re-mount their bikes and continue the race although bloody and half-naked, leaving shreds of cycling pant behind them in the French countryside.
