This is an unusual scene that the peloton attended, despite himself, this Saturday at the 14th stage of the Tour de France.
After five kilometers of racing, about thirty protesters blocked Julian Alaphilippe and the other runners, around Tarbes (Hautes-Pyrénées). Yellow Vests, on the occasion of the eighth consecutive month of mobilization? Not at all. This is actually an event … against the installation of an industrial pigsty in Ossun supposed to accommodate 6,000 pigs a year. Their message, sported on the t-shirts: "no porcharan".
The race started again after several minutes of interruption. Direction the Col du Tourmalet for an explanation between favorites.
