As if Saturday's near disaster at the finish line of the Tour de France wasn't enough — when a dopey bus driver got the rig stuck — wasn't enough, there was another close call on the road during Stage 2 of the cycling event. On Sunday a dog was narrowly missed by a pack of competitors as they rounded a village road a couple of kilometers from the finish.
The little white pup managed to escape the arms of its owner right before the peloton of bikes came around a bend. The dog avoided taking down about two dozen cyclists by darting to the side of the road just before they peddled by.
The dog days of summer. Pardon. Les canicules de l'ete.
