More fun from the Tour de Syringe

When last we left Chris Froome -- who is actually a really, really good rider, and is probably going to be your Tour de Syringe, er, Tour de France winner this year -- he was punching out a man in a chicken suit while simultaneously maintaining a blistering pace.

(If you don't understand this sentence, you don't understand the Tour. Apparently dodging people in chicken suits is part of the Tour ethos, and just one of the many challenges).

Well, things have gotten no less weird.

Most recently, Froome and another rider crashed into the back of a photo motorcycle, which unaccountably came to a dead stop right in front of them. Froome's bike was wrecked, so he did this.

Which, of course, called to mind that epic duel between Jean Girard and Ricky Bobby in "Talladega Nights."

Well. At least for some of us.
