Police looking for spectator who sparked chaotic Tour de France crash

June 26, 2021

French police are looking for a spectator who sent dozens of elite cyclists crashing in a massive pileup on the first day of the Tour de France during the weekend.

On Saturday, German cyclist Tony Martin was sent tumbling at high speed when he rode straight into a cardboard sign being held out by an unidentified woman. Martin fell off his bike, leading to a pack of riders around him to crash as well — leaving behind a tangled mess of bikes and cyclists. NBC
