TWEET OF THE DAY: JASPER STUYVEN’S WARNING FOR ROADSIDE SPECTATORS

Crashes marred stage one of the Tour de France as the 184-man peloton navigated tight farm roads. The first major incident was caused by a fan brandishing a cardboard banner trying to get on television, the second by a technical error at high speed as riders jostled for position at the foot of the final slope. Jasper Stuyven was quick to tweet following Julian Alaphilippe’s solo victory in Landerneau responding to the first crash saying “I hope Omi & Opi are proud of you.. On a serious note though; great to see still many spectators are loving our sport and cheering for us, but please, stay on the side of the road, not on the road!”
