Cyclists are starting to get fed up with spectators getting in their way at the 2014 Tour de France. After seeing what happened on Sunday, it's obvious that the cyclists' complaints are valid.

During Stage 2, one cyclist plowed through a spectator who was standing right on top of the course. Luckily, the rider didn't get taken out during the collision.

The man clearly had his foot over the white line, and he paid the price.
