The best part is the bloke trudging up the road to collect his flag still wearing his antlers.

Flecha should've set fire to the flag.  Isn't that the only reason to have a Stars n Stripes outside the US?

Watch the video again. At about 40s he looks around to ask if anyone has a light and when it appears that no one does he drops the flag

ROFL   Love it!

01:02, team car hoots and the prat flicks it two fingers.  Really shows him up as the idiot he is ;D ;D ;D ;D



That ranks closely with my all time favourite (if anybody can find it).   Top of a climb, fans crowding in across the road and it's getting dangerous for the riders.  One lunges in and gets a riders fist in the face that laid him out backwards.  The commentators (Phil and Shaun IIRC ) were in full praise.

Am I the only one who feels a leedle sorry for this guy? I mean, he's made a lot of effort with his stupid costume, and he's not doing any harm - unlike so many of the 'fans' that get in the way on the big climbs.

Perhaps if he'd had a devil's pitch fork instead of a US flag you'd all love him?

(Still very funny, though... )

It's very funny watching Juan steal the flag, but equally (like MattC) I do have to feel sorry for the guy.
What on earth am I doing here on this beautiful day?! This is the only life I've got!!

It is the antlers that are particularly unforgivable. not the flag.
