A man dressed as a police officer leveled a fan at the world road cycling championships men’s time trial in Bergen, Norway, on Wednesday.
Spectators often run up close enough to touch riders on mountain stages at the Tour de France.
However, this man in a red hooded sweatshirt was decked while chasing German Tony Martin from two or three strides behind near the summit finish of a 19-mile time trial.
Martin, eyeing his record fifth world title in the time trial, was ninth on a course not suited to his strengths.
