This is the shocking moment when a spectator at a bicycle race took to the track just before the finish line, knocking down the aspiring champion.

Racing fans can be heard screaming as the woman and rider fall to the ground in the head-on collision.

The incident took place in the Condaca Salmor cycling event on the island of El Hierro in the Canary Islands on Saturday.

Footage taken at the scene shows the apparent leader feeling victory in sight and racing towards the finish line that marks the end of the 55-mile-long route.

Spectators count on both sides of the road, and at one point a man is seen casually crossing from one side of the track to the other, but with plenty of time to spare.

However, with the first rider now just a few feet away, a woman decides to follow in his footsteps.

She appears to lean into the crowd before crossing the road, but the fast biker hits her head-on.
