Tour de France - Ouch

We are having several problems in the UK with allegations of Media interfering with daily life. The French media however have a much less covert method of changing the outcome of events. It looks like they just take out the race leader if they don't like who it is !!!


Of the two riders it would seem the one that was thrown into the barbed wire fence came off worse, he needed quite a few stitches and a new pair of shorts. (photo from daily cycle) Both riders did continue

Definitely a time to say "owwww that's going to leave a mark ! "



To avoid incurring the wrath of the French Press I should of course point out that the car was swerving to avoid the tree. The driver had been told not to be in that position though to allow support cars access.

The cheek of it!, perhaps everyone should stop buying papers for a couple of weeks to see what would happen?

That's going to leave a mark. I saw the car hit the bicyclist - ouch!

Oh, my word! The poor cyclists! Unbelievable that they survived. and the one hit by the car narrowly missed being run-over by a second car. Crazy, wild day!
