Majka came into contact with the spectator 3.5 kilometres into the 21.5km time trial on day one in Italy, the Bora-Hansgrohe team unable to avoid the collision at a pedestrian crossing.

Tirreno – Adriatico , nicknamed the "Race of the Two Seas", is an elite cycle race in Italy, run between the Tyrrhenian and Adriatic coasts.

Rohan Dennis celebrates after winning the time trial at Tirreno - Adriatico . Sagan managed to swing onto the pavement to avoid crashing before swooping back onto the course, and he was able to make light of the near-collision as he waited to mount the podium as winner of the points classification.

"We had an unlucky day, marred by a bad crash," said team doctor Jan-Niklas Droste. "Oscar Gatto has quite a lot of bruises while Rafal Majka went down hard.

"He [Majka] has hematomas and abrasions on his head and we will have to run additional tests and diagnostics in order to evaluate whether the impact caused a concussion or not."

Team sports director Enrico Poitschke added: "Unfortunately, we had a very bad day. Just 3.5km into the stage, a spectator crashed into the team, taking down two riders and splitting up the squad.

Lennon analyses "pedestrian" performance against Aberdeen

Lennon analyses Celtic boss Neil Lennon believes his side were too “pedestrian” in Saturday’s goalless draw with Aberdeen, according to BT Sport. The Hoops maintained their eight point advantage at the top of the Scottish Premiership following the stalemate, but could have moved 10 points clear of second placed Rangers with a victory over the Dons. Lennon oversaw two victories against Hearts and Hibernian respectively from his first two games in charge since replacing Brendan Rodgers, but failed to make it three from three in Saturday’s draw.

"From then on our guys weren't in the best mood but still gave a fight.

"The good news is that Rafal Majka is set to continue the race. He doesn't look good after the crash but he will be there.

"Our chances at the GC are probably gone now but we will try to fight for, possibly, a stage win that will keep our spirits high. Still, it was a very bad day for us."
