(Newser) – The most treacherous element of this year's Tour de France seems to be the people watching it. A fan's elbow caused a big crash during Stage 1, and the unfortunate collisions continued yesterday when a French TV car turned into a group of bikers it was tracking, causing two to wipe out. A third biker was tapped in the collision, but managed to ride through it, shaking his head as he did so, reports Big Lead Sports. Yesterday was a bad day for crashes; click to see some horrific photos.
