Tour de France Fans

Chances are, if you live in North America, you probably haven’t paid all that much attention to the Tour de France since Lance Armstrong retired. However, you should. Even if everyone who’s ever won the race is a cheater, this is still one of the greatest spectacles in all of sports. And, much like the Kentucky Derby or the Daytona 500, the fans that line the routes of the TDF really know how to party. 

To prove it, we present you this list. It may not make you any more interested in the actual sport of cycling, but it will make you wish you were there nonetheless. So take a look.


25. Aussie Speedo Guys

I wouldn’t have thought wearing tiny yellow speedos would be an effective way to motivate a cyclist while he’s riding up the side of a mountain. But I guess these dudes know something about cycling that I don’t.


24. Mr. Gorilla

I’m going to assume that this guy is giving bananas to riders so they can replenish their potassium and that the ape suit is just for fun.


23. Beach Party

Looks like these folks were just hanging out on the beach down there when they looked up and saw some bike race going by. I wonder if they even knew it was the Tour de France.


22. American Patriots

21. Chicken Dude

Nothing will get you moving up a hill faster than a crazy man in a chicken suit chasing after you.


20. Shirtless Corsican

The 2012 Tour de France started out on the French island of Corsica, whose flag here is being help up by this attractive couple. (Apparently, in Corsica, the TDF attracts the same types of people NASCAR attracts in Florida.)


19. Pesky Surgeon

This surgeon is trying to give Alberto Contador a little checkup. Unfortunately, he wound up getting punched in the face.


18. Pinky and the Banana

Does this guy like cycling? No, he’s bananas for it.


17. Half Naked Dutch Chicks

You gotta be careful if you’re planning to wear underwear to the Tour de France. You don’t want to distract your favorite rider and throw him off his game.


16. Nuns

16 crazy tour de france fans - nuns

Also, you don’t want to be standing around half-naked next to a bunch of nuns. It will make you pretty uncomfortable.


15. Half Naked Norwegian Chicks


Or, whatever, just wear your underwear. It’s cool.


14. Cavemen

Just a bunch of cavemen jumping around in a field. Nothing to see here.


13. Batman and Robin

Who knew Batman and the Boy Wonder were such huge cycling fans? Gotham is a long way from central France.


12. Batman and Chicken

And here we see Batman has apparently replaced longtime sidekick Robin with a the more comical Chicken Man. Excellent decision.


11. Antler Boy and Captain America

On the right you have a frat bro wearing the American flag as a cape. On the left a dude with antlers on a football helmet. (How do you get a giant set of antlers through customs, anyway?)


10. Texas Longhorn

Speaking of things that would be very difficult to get through customs…this guy.


9. Pantsless Santas

9 santa clause guys - crazy tour de france fans

I don’t know about you, but I prefer my Santas to wear pants at all times. I’m old school like that.


8. Satan

8 devil guy - crazy tour de france fans

Actually, I don’t think that’s a costume. I think this really is the Prince of Darkness.


7. Horrible Chicken Pox?


No, these guys do not have the worst ever case of chicken pox. They’re just big fans of team Carrefour, whose cyclists wear red polka-dotted jerseys and hats.


6. Cross Dressing Cosplay

To answer the question you’re thinking in your head right now, yes, it is messed up to be turned on by a dude dressed up as Smurfette.


5. Mounties

It’s nice to see the Mounties are out supporting Canadian cyclists, but I think France is a little out of their jurisdiction.


4. Spinning Team

4 crazy tour de france fans on stationary bikes

Now this one took a lot of planning. You don’t just wake up one morning and say, hey, lets get a bunch of dudes and a bunch of stationary bikes and go on down to the Tour de France and have some fun. No. This kind of thing takes at least…what, two days to put together?


3. Swiss Borats


That’s an awful lot of man-cleavage for a country that best known for always wanting to remain neutral.


2. Enthusiastic Streaker

2 streaker - crazy tour de france fans

Sure, this dude is extremely naked. But you’d have to think the cyclist really appreciates that enthusiastic encouragement.


1. Flasher

E voila. What better way to finish the list than with some bare female breasts…with little TPS logos? Obviously, these two lovebirds are big cycling fans.
