It’s an unfortunate fact that if you’re a real cyclist it’s not a case of if you’ll crash, but when. Cycling and crashes go together like the birds and the bees.

Clearly, cyclist Johnny Hoogerland doesn’t need to be told this, after a close encounter with a photographer and a barbed wire fence during the 2011 Tour de France.
