Tour de France spectator trips overzealous fan running with cyclist (Video)
An fan who tried to run alongside a cyclist in Alpe D'Huez during Friday's 18th stage of the Tour de France paid for his overzealous behavior when he was tripped by a spectator.
The fan in the pink tank top came out of the crowd and began running close behind Tejay Van Garderen before a fan in the blue shirt sent him sprawling to the ground. There was a brief confrontation between the spectators after the incident (captured in the video above), but no punches were thrown and they were separated quickly.
Let's watch it again and again in GIF form:
