So you’ve dedicated your life to training for one of the toughest endurance sports in the world. 21 gruelling stages, over 3,403km featuring dizzying hill climbs, proving yourself against the best cyclists.
Then, when you’re trying desperately to dig for one last big effort, some idiot in a luminous green headband and knee-high socks, draped in a flag starts chasing you shouting about how much he loves you and quoting Justin Bieber lyrics or something.
Don’t be mistaken, these people are not fans. They are morons. That makes it a whole lot more enjoyable when, every so often, they get what’s coming to them.
Whether it is a proper fan or even one of the cyclists dishing out the punishment, it is sweet justice for people who want to enjoy the race.
Here are our favourite three moments of idiots getting their just desserts at this year’s Tour De France.
