Tour de France officials said a spectator who caused a pileup of cyclists in the first stage of the race on Saturday will be sued once police find her.
A woman holding a large sign with the words “ALLEZ OPI-OMI!” (German terms of endearment for grandparents) stepped into the bikers’ path apparently to try and get her sign on TV, clipped Germany’s Tony Martin, and set off a chain reaction.
Several cyclists and other spectators were hurt.
The tour’s deputy director made clear they want the sign-holder punished. “We are suing this woman who behaved so badly.”
The woman ran off when the pileup happened.
What’s the wildest/craziest thing you’ve seen a fan do at a sporting event? Did they get caught doing it?
