Alberto C won the Giro d’Italia but the Tour de France hasn’t gone his way in 2011

His frustration with the Tour this year sort of burst out in some individual aggression on a Tour fan who just got too close to Alberto in his penultimate fight to gain the yellow jersey and top GC standing.

 

These kinds of Tour fans behave clownishly and don’t give much room to the competitors, especially on the HC climbs, like the Alpe d’Huez. More power to Alberto here since he seems to have acted in a normal human, like “Get out of the way you idiot!”

Here is the Google map site to check it out!

There are at least two street views and lots of photos linked to this map view.

This may have been the day that the 2008 winner was found, Carlos Sastre is now the Yellow Jersey with a lead of 1′ 24″.
