Rod, I agree w/r/t poorly behaved spectators. However, you missed the worst of it. Richie Porte copped a punch, Froome a cup of piss. Last year a spectator tried to give a rider they liked an (uninvited) push, forcing him to unclip from the pedal and momentarily stop as he lost balance; which immediately ensured he was no longer in contention for the stage win (won by an Aussie, Michael Rogers, so I won't complain too loudly (however Rogers was odds on to win anyway I reckon)).

Its weird and slightly baffling to me how the cycling media and public play favourites, and Team Sky/Froome is most definitely not a favourite. Similarly the way some riders caught glowing are cast as the devil, and others forgiven quickly.
