Tour De France 2014 Stage 2: Cote De Blubberhouses
Early birds staking their (rather precarious) pitches .
Much of the road up the pass had signs saying "No Spectators" I think because it was rather steep hillside and the organisers feared falls and accidents.
So some of the best viewing positions involved climbing over walls and a bit of trespass.
People were keen to get good views, so kept going were they weren't supposed to go. There was a constant game of cat and mouse between the spectators and marshals in the hours leading up to the riders arriving.
The leading pack arrive.
The spectators who have avoided the mars halls get the best views.
