This year marks the 108th edition of the Tour de France, which has a rich history and is followed from all over the world. Every year, some memorable moments come up, but this time it’s due to something less positive.
An unidentified bystander holding a sign to take a picture caused German cyclist Tony Martin to crash at high speed on June 26. Immediately afterwards, a large number of cyclists staged a massive crash. Dozens of bicycles and cyclists were piled up and some were injured.
A French police spokesman told NBC News that they are still looking for the viewer, who was videotaped wearing a yellow jacket, leaning over the road and smiling while posing with a sign that read “Allez Opi-Omi” (“Come on, grandpa -grandmother “, mixing French and German). He left the chaotic scene before the investigators arrived.
