Nearly another shocking incident with a pedestrian just casually strolling across the road in front of the riders. A lady did the same on day 1.
Not surprising.Most of the people in this country are ignorant and unenlightened.
To be fair, now there are quite a few fans along the roadside in the city, unlike most races I watch that take place east of Italy.
Most of them are not even fans.They are there just because they want to see what is happening.Plus the government may have brought them and give money to them after,I wouldn't be surprised.After the race the people would continue not caring.
Well, Turkey are still better at pretending fans exist than the rest of Asia.

So just like with most every other race in most every other country then.
The point I wanted to make is most of them live/work in the roadisde and just coming there to see the cyclists.And a small percent is casually walking on the roadside while the cyclists were riding:D

I'm guessing they mean it holds true there more than in other countries. I'd risk saying with fair certainty that, at least in Europe, most people on the roadside went there for the event in particular, and are not just mirones.

I'd also say that in Europe, even those people who didn't go to the roadside specifically to watch the event still for the most part know how to behave, such as... not walking out onto the road right in front of the riders.

Indeed.
 
But of course, at the risk of sounding extremely prejudiced, you sometimes get the suspicion that people from those parts of the world don't really know that you shouldn't just walk out onto the road right in front of traffic in general...

You are right though.
Most of the people in Turkey are like that.Nothing can change them.

Okay, WTF happened there? These time gaps could be from a gt in the middle of week 3?
How long was this crosswind section so the time gaps are that huge and how awful were all the other teams? :eek:
So you didn't watch the stage...

This is so funny.
