The Tour de France descended into chaos Saturday after a careless fan caused a massive crash at the event when their sign hit one of the riders. The fan was posing for the camera with the character and not watching the race when a rider collided with the movement.
With all the riders packed so close together, the impact of the crash was massive. At least one bike was damaged as a result of the collision. It’s unclear whether any riders were seriously injured in the incident.
Tour de France started Saturday.
The Tour de France kicked off Saturday and will run through July 18. The event will feature 21 days of biking and two rest days. The event, which usually begins in June or July, was pushed back to August last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With vaccines available and COVID figures dropping globally, the event was moved back to June 2021.
