Video: George Bennett KO’s spectator at the Tour de France
During Saturday’s stage eight of the Tour de France, Chris Froome’s tolerance for over-exuberant fans was lost. As a spectator sprinted alongside him, the British cyclist punched threw an elbow Jon Jones would have been proud of.
On Today’s ninth stage, there was further unwanted fan involvement. A roadside spectator appeared to step out in front of George Bennett (LottoNl-Jumbo) as he was riding up the final Arcalis climb and rounding a corner. Bennett attempted to swerve around the spectator, but instead engaged them with his shoulder, causing them to fall to the ground.
