A morbid thought raced through my mind during the rolling stage today: What if some Yankee-hating sharpshooter says, "I have had eeenuff of zees American swine winning all of the time!" and he assasinates Lance with no regard of what happens to himself? The organizers couldn't possible cover ever part of the 2000+ miles.
Who's to say one of those nuts in the Pyrenees couldn't come out of the mob with a knife and also...well..you know?
The point i'm making is that I have never seen such lax crowd control at a sporting event ever...the guy with the motorcycle collision yesterday is a good illustration.
Anybody know how safe the Tour Day France really is?
