The Tour de France is an ordeal that can apparently also be made into a party. Apparently that’s what Benoît Cosnefroy thought on the 14th stage on Saturday when he was welcomed by his fan club at the foot of the extremely difficult climb to the Col de Joux Plane. A video of what was probably the most incredible party of this year’s tour was circulated on Twitter on Saturday evening.
When Cosnefroy sees his singing fan club, he gets off his bike and apparently takes a sip of beer next to a Bengali torch. Then the Frenchman hugged a few fans and lifted his bike in the air before he hopped over the asphalt with his supporters, singing exuberantly.
Tour de France: Cosnefroy three hours behind
The fan club, called FCC, supports both Cosnefroy and his AG2R teammate Aurélien Paret-Peintre, who was born in Annemasse, where stage 14 started.
“We are here with the FCC and some friends. We invited everyone to have a shot at the bar, eat something and have a good time,” Cosnefroy’s wife Margaux told France 2 TV painted the street.

Cosnefroy continued the stage after the party break. The 27-year-old reached the finish line in a group with Paret-Peintre 37:29 minutes behind the Spanish winner of the day, Carlos Rodriguez. In the overall standings, the classics specialist in 102nd place is already more than three hours behind leader Jonas Vingegaard. (aw/dpa)
