Face it... the Tour and several other races have become a clown show due to poor organization. Fan interference, motos causing wrecks, horrible finishing sections. What changes would you like to see?

1) Barriers 6k out and pay to be in that area.

2) No road hardware in the last 2k.

2nd the smaller teams. 6 should be plenty.

They could also create a pool of all the salaries of all the race vehicle drivers. If a rider gets knocked off by a vehicle that day, the pot goes to the rider.

Finally: Masters Tour de France. Ned vs the Badger.

Ban the power meters and allow race radio to broadcast safety messages only

barriers for sure, keep the clowns off the road, and out of the way.

smaller teams

no road furniture in the last 2K, W/O so many hazardous turns, same time in the last 3K for the GC guys keep them out of the chaos, and let the sprint teams go at it
