It would be cool to have more fans along the routes and dressed in costumes like at the grand tours.
Statue of Liberty (historical figures)
The Devil with pitchfork and horns
NO FAT GUYS IN MANKINIS please!!!
Product sponsors!!! $$$
Crazy fans having fun sharing energy & excitement = good! Drunk / Stupid fans running along side riders causing wrecks = bad. Let’s model some good behavior. Hand up a few cookies and then be out of the way.
I’m with hamernale ale on this one. That’s the one thing about cycling that’s different from any other sport is the ability for fans to get real close and have a mental impact on the energy levels of a rider. Some of those costumes are off the hook. I would welcome that as a possible option to select. Especially on leith hillnor the radio tower climb.
Especially on the Alpe!!!
This would be a fun extra to drop in on public holidays, April Fools Day etc. - or, as suggested, an option that could be toggled on/off. I’d like to see it from time to time, but not sure I’d want it 24/7!
