    Car hits in the peleton?

    I know people have on into the back window of some team cars but has anyone been run over by one? Watching the Giro today it seems pretty crazy in the back with all the cars and yet the pro racers have no issues just swerving right through all the traffic as if there was nothing to worry about. Just wonderin...

    The most famous is Jesper Skibby's bike getting rolled over on the Koppenberg. Skibby narrowly missed being hit.

    I remember seeing a picture or video about a year ago of some guy's arm or leg being rolled over in a smaller race. He was not well known and wasn't seriously hurt
