Connor Swift sprinted to tenth on stage two of the Tour de Yorkshire – but was lucky to avoid crashing in the final 250-metres.
The British champion made it to the front of the bunch at the right time to contest the kick into Bedale, after a relatively formulaic day of racing.
With the breakaway neutralised, the leadouts assembled and Swift was in the thick of the action, assisted by the team.
But at the business end of the sprint, a touch of wheels sent a rider crashing to the ground.
Swift swerved to avoid the danger, ultimately inhibiting his chance of racing for the win as the charge to the line continued.
However, the Yorkshireman was fortunate to be in clear air and avoid crashing himself, with the chance to race again on stage three.
