Right in front of the camera. I nearly dropped my coke. Did anyone else see this or was I hallucinating? It was about midway through the race the five guys were already way off the front and CA was pacing the main peloton. One of the guys in green sat up and drifted to the right of the screen and rather unambiguously dropped his hand down and grabbed his package. He proceeds to pull the front of his bib down and voila. Hell, I think it was Bobby Julich. It was pretty funny.
Well you do what ya gotta, he didSpyder Ryder

He didn't move his camera for like ten seconds. I've watched a lot of sports and don't believe I've seen public urination ever. LOL!

even in the road to the tour documentary show a postie doing it. During an interview someone mentions the fact that sometimes you have to pee during a race and inmediatly after there is a quick shot of a postie doing the pro-pee.
Did you see the first stage?Ken K

When the peloton was stopped at the railroad crossing, numerous riders dismounted and proceeded to the bushes on the side of the road to ahem, take care of business. The overhead shot from the helicopter captured it all. I think that even one of the commentators made a crack about how the local spectators were getting a bit more 'exposure' to the race than they bargained for.
Don't think they'll be including that scene in the highlight video...haha

That was hilariousmr_spin

Those people sitting there in their lawn chairs, surrounded by 40-50 guys peeing on every bush! That's a memory to tell the grandkids! "Yeah, I remember when the tour came to town. They all peed on that bush right over there!"

Yeah, I saw that too. I had to call my wife over to show her. She didn't believe me when I told her we peed while riding. Well, she does now.
