The race was marked by a protest that forced the main pack of riders to stop flat in their tracks after supporters of radical farmer Jose Bove ran into the road and blocked cyclists near Pourrieres, about 147 kilometers (91 miles) into the race.

Tour officials immediately ruled that the protest was "a normal race incident," meaning that the riders who lost time because of the protest would not get it back.

France. Where protesters stopping things is "normal".
