Tour de France Fan Who Caused Huge Crash Missing As Lawsuit Looms
Presse Sports-USA TODAY Sports
Race officials are still looking for the fan who caused a massive crash at the Tour de France with a sign greeting her grandparents on Saturday, they intend to file a lawsuit...
quote:

Pierre-Yves Thouault, the tour’s deputy director, told AFP on Saturday that race organizers will sue the woman so "the tiny minority of people who do this don’t spoil the show for everyone." Ouest-France reported that day that the woman, whom the outlet speculated was likely German, fled the country by plane.
...
"I saw the lady, I saw the sign but there was no time to react," Martin said (via Deutsche Welle). "I still can't understand how people can do things like that. We're here to race our bikes – it's not a circus."

The woman’s sign read, "Allez Opi-Omi." "Allez" is French for "go," whereas "opi" and "omi" are informal German terms for "grandpa" and "grandma."

I wonder if they would be searching for her to penalize her if she was kneeling or caused it holding a BLM sign

I hope they do find her and press charges. Stupidity should have a penalty.

For what? An accident? There is no evidence that she did it purposely. If anyone is to blame, it is the organizers for not securing the track correctly.

It's called personal responsibility. The organizers can't account for every possible scenario. She couldn't tell a hundred bikers were heading directly towards her? Come on now.

It wasn't enough to frick up France in 1914 and 1940 now they are at it again. I guess the Yanks and the Brits will have to straighten this one out too.
