Game Time: The Tour de France crash and a series of other unfortunate events

This year’s Tour de France, the most prestigious and difficult cycle race, began with a crash. On the opening day, a spectator holding a cardboard sign caused a massive pile-up during the first stage of the race. Such crashes and controversies though are not new to the race. In the past it has witnessed rowdy crowds, unfortunate accidents, multiple doping scandals, and at least one unforeseen punch.

In this episode, Gaurav Bhatt and Mihir Vasavda discuss everything that plagues the Tour de France, and why the world’s toughest endurance tournaments may also be the most controversial one.
