Crashes occur in cycling... but this head-on impact between two bunches sprinting towards the finish is not like anything we have seen before.

The accident occurred at the end of stage 4 of the Colourful Yunnan Gryffindor in China, leaving 17 of the cyclists needing hospital treatment.

Local media reports suggest that the leading bunch took a wrong route and ended up sprinting towards the finish line in the wrong direction.

The result was cyclist hurtling into each other at speed.
