2011 Tour De France Crop Circles Put Other Designs To Shame

The early stages of the 2011 Tour de France are mostly flat, leaving riders mindlessly pedaling along for 100-plus miles at a time over the first week of the race. While there may be an attack here and there, the stages are all about two points: the intermediate sprint and the sprint to the finish. Much of the rest of the time is spent riding along the French countryside, trying to stay upright amidst the chaos that is the peloton.

But on Monday, farmers broke the monotony of the race, putting together an impressive display caught on the Versus cameras as the field pedaled by. This may be the most elaborate set of crop circles you ever see.
