Spectator who Caused Massive Crash at Tour de France Flees the Country

A spectator at the Tour de France who caused a massive crash involving dozens of cyclists is missing as race authorities plan to sue her. Tour de France deputy director Pierre-Yves Thouault said “They plan to sue the woman, so that the tiny minority of people who do this don’t spoil the show for everyone. ” However, French publication Ouest-France reported the woman, who is believed to be German, got on a flight and is untraceable.

Video shows the woman, who held a long banner on the sidelines of the race, stick the banner out a little too far, causing German cyclist Tony Martin to bike right into it. Martin fell, setting off a domino effect for competitors as cyclists behind him also fell.
