    I couldn't believe my eyes when I was watching this morning. From what I've read the two who got hit finished the stage. Whoever the asshat was that was driving the French news/reporter car should be fined and fired.

    IMO, they should pull all cars to back of pack. If you want a new bike, or water, or support from your team, you must fall back to the end of the pack and get it.

    they've taken mechanical failure and luck out of the race by having all those cars there, and i'm sure they get in the way.

    Looks like he swerved to avoid that tree that was sorta kind of sticking out towards the road.
