The Tour de France stage was frozen for ten minutes because of some protesters.

Moments of chaos at the Tour de France: the tenth stage of the Grande Boucle was paralyzed for about ten minutes after nine protesters blocked the race 35 kilometers from the finish line of the stage finishing in Megeve to protest climate change.

Police blocked the group and drove away the protesters, who armed with smoke bombs had blocked the road. Our Bettiol, who was on the run, overtook the protesters but was forced by the jury to stop. Distances from the group were in any case respected, and the race after about ten minutes restarted.
