Saturday's stage was billed as the most important in this year's Baloise Belgium Tour, but after 65 km two bikers attempted to overtake the riders on a cycling path in a descent. The cycling path suddenly ended bringing the bikers into difficulty. They fell into the bunch pulling down nineteen riders at the same time.
Stig Broeckx, who was hit by a bike in Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne needed treatment. Broeckx, Ludvigsson, Asselman, Guardini and Skjerping were all taken to hospital.
