BrownieBytes Take: Typical idiot spectator trying to get a selfie with a sign causes a disaster crash on the first day. Arrest her! The stupid sign had something to do with her grandparents. Dox the idiot. Her actions wrecked a professional cyclist that has trained for years for this race and she stole that time and effort. As a former racer, nothing makes me more angry than a selfish spectator.
Jasha Sütterlin was forced to withdraw from the race due to an injury sustained in the crash, according to @LeTour.
Most riders were able to continue on after the sign incident, but Jasha Sutterlin had to leave the race because of the crash, according to NBC Sports.
The Tour de France tweeted later that while it is happy to have spectators on hand to take in the race, it wanted fans to “respect the safety of the riders” and not to “risk everything for a photo or to get on television.”
