Tour de France spectator who caused crash with sign in Stage 1 arrested

The fan still has not been publicly identified.

Officials in the Brittany region of France have reportedly arrested a fan wanted in connection with a massive crash at the Tour de France. 

The fan held up a large cardboard sign while stepping out into the path of oncoming cyclists on Saturday, the first day of the multi-day race. Video of the race shows the woman was looking toward cameras and away from the pack of riders. 

Her sign read “go grandma and grandpa” in French. 

The sign hit one of the riders near the front of the pack. The cyclist fell, leading to more crashes as riders behind him fell.

The crash was significant, taking down or slowing down dozens of riders. The race was held up for several minutes as bicycles and people were detangled.
