At the 7min mark in the video you can see the pointy end of the bunch come around the corner into the finishing straight. Peter Sagan’s rear wheel slid out slightly and then started fishtailing out of control. It looks like he may have either rolled his tubular or his rim buckled (or both). Unable to unclip  Segan subsequently hucked his bike into an unwitting Quickstep rider (Kevin De Weert?) which took out many more.

Photos coming soon..
