2011 Tour De France: Alberto Contador Tires Of Crazy Fan, Punches Him

One of the more amazing things about the Tour de France is just how close spectators are to the riders, especially in the mountain stages. We're talking about narrow, winding roads lined with cycling fans reaching their arms out and hoping to get a piece of their favorite riders, creating a dangerous and scary situation at times. We've already seen a car run over a cyclist in this year's Tour de France and we've seen Lance Armstrong toppled by a lady with a bag in the mountains of a previous tour. It's hazardous stuff.

And sometimes, it's not just the cyclists in danger. Like on Friday, when Alberto Contador had enough of a running lunatic in some kind of weird outfit that involved a surgical mask. Without breaking rhythm, Contador reaches out and punches the guy, continuing on his merry way on the climb like nothing had happened.
