On Sunday, a Tour De France official sent a warning to the woman who caused Saturday’s crash.
During Saturday’s day of racing, a woman – who was holding a large sign – got a bit too close to the racers. Her sign got in the way of one of the cyclists. Disaster ensued.
A cyclist crashed into the woman’s sign, causing a massive pileup behind him. Plenty of cyclists wound up crashing. To make matters worse, the woman fled the scene before investigators arrived. Make no mistake, though. Tour De France officials are investigating the matter and plan to find the woman.

That’s about as bad as it gets. The woman deserves the discipline coming her way in coming weeks.
Unfortunately, fans like the sign-holding woman are going to ruin these events for the rest of fans. The Tour De France may have to consider fan restrictions to prevent crashes like this from ever happening again.
