Italian bike cop takes out Team Sky at the Giro d'Italia

Police escort crashes into Geraint Thomas and his team mates at the Giro d'Italia

WE THOUGHT police motorcyclsits were meant to be the cream of the crop but we're starting to question that.

Check out this crash during a stage of the Giro d'Italia over the weekend - a dozey Italian officer edged his bike in too close to the peloton and caused a mass crash which took out Team Sky.

It's the second example of poor police riding we've seen recently after the an officer in London crashed while escorting a member of the royal family.
