Worst we saw in Yorkshire was a few selfie prats, wasn't it? Although a London selfie prat on stage 3 ended Andy Schleck's racing career.

What we need is some of those nice Spanish policemen from the Vuelta manhandling spectators off the course... best not get them to check the route for bollards, though. :-(

i do think it has got worse on home roads in more recent years (post 2012?) there were plenty of people on holme moss for the leeds classics but they weren't obstructive. even the thousands riding down the slopes after the race had been through were quite well ordered.

They should have sued the London Selfie Prat, damn pedestrians, they aren't licenced, they're untraceable, they don't have insurance.
