BOURG D’OISANS, France (AP) — A spectator threw a smoke bomb into the Tour de France peloton as it passed by on Friday.

Nobody came to any harm. Unlike on Thursday, when a fan’s camera strap appeared to snag Vincenzo Nibali’s handlebars on Alpe d’Huez, he slammed to the ground and broke a vertebra.

The incidents make teams worried fans are getting out of hand on the most famous climbs of the Tour.
