Cow Crossing Causes Cycling Pile Up (Video)

Holding a cycling race on a street that passes through the grassy fields where cows graze may not seem like such a bad idea, but it turned out to be a catastrophic mess during the Critérium du Dauphiné cycling race in France this weekend.

The race is said to be a tune-up for cyclists prior to the Tour de France, which is scheduled to begin on July 2nd.  However, for at least a few of the cyclists it may have marked the end of their Tour de France hopes after this frightening run-in with some street-crossing cows.
