Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Do I dare ask what event this was?

The caption for the pic was: "Overall leader's yellow jersey Britain's Christopher Froome, center, rides behind his teammates Australia's Richie Porte and ahead of Spain's Joaquim Rodriguez Oliver during the 18th stage of the 100th edition of the Tour de France cycling race on July 18, 2013"

Really?  I would think such antics would not be allowed at such a prestigious race.  They might distract the racers or even trip them up.  It seems unfair, as probably not "all" the racers are being subjected to such nonsense.

Could be that the Trib just got it wrong, I'm not sure. It wasn't part of a news story, it was in their image gallery (they do daily ones).
