Tour de France is not just about the sport. It might be hard to admit for the really hardcore cyclists, but it’s also a social event. A social event full of people in weird, funny, and cool costumes. So why not relax for a bit and enjoy the inventive creations the fans have come up with.

Well, at least I think the guy in the red-and-yellow outfit is dressed as a chicken….

Instead of cheering for one cyclist, this guy is cheering for his nation.

Guys with Flares

Apparently, flares are also popular at French rugby and football games…. (Maybe not so cool considering that Bradley Wiggins was burned by one of these at TdF 2012.)
