2014 Tour de France

July 7, 2014
Stage 3, Cambridge – London
155 km (96 mi)

  • No credentials = jumping barriers and hoping for the best
  • No credentials = getting kicked out by security

  • Rui Costa loves riding around in circles, and being asked for his autograph. Including fans who are dressed in replica kit and matching helmet to look just like him.
