12 strange things from the 2015 Tour de France

It's a lot more than just bike racing

1.  Giant-Alpecin’s Simon Geschke had his shoes stolen…

3. There’s a Didi impersonator out there somewhere, despite the fact real Didi is back and going strong. Surely some kind of copyright infringment.

5. The time that someone left this big bin of bread outside in the rain.


6.  The sad story of the cat stuck in the Astana car.
