CPA joins legal action against ‘Allez Opi-Omi’ fan who caused massive crash at Tour de France

October 13, 2021

The French spectator who caused a massive crash at the Tour de France this summer faces a French court this week. And the CPA riders group has joined the legal action.

French media reports say the fan, who held up a sign in front of the fast-charging peloton and caused a big crash, will face charges of “endangering others” as well as “unintentional injury” in a French criminal court.

The newspaper reports that the woman, a local 31-year-old in the Finistère area, faces a fine of up to 15,000 euros and a possible one-year jail sentence. Velo News
