Tour de France spectator being sued after causing crash

A Tour de Fance spectator is being sued by organisers after causing a crash, which resulted in German cyclist Tony Martin being sent tumbling forward.

The spectator was holding a cardboard sign and was not paying attention to the race when the incident occurred.


The incident caused havoc, with 21 cyclists becoming injured.

It also caused German Jasha Suetterlin to leave the Tour due to injuries sustained in the incident.

Julian Alaphilippe recovered from the crash to win the first stage of the Tour.


It is currently unclear as to what the Tour de France organisers will be suing the spectator for.
