The 2011 Tour de France got off on the wrong foot Saturday when a spectator leaned too far into the track, causing a massive pile-up that brought down dozens of racers.

After almost making it through Stage 1, Astana cycler Maxim Iglinsky was clipped by the overreaching female spectator's elbow, causing him to veer into—and bring down—an entire line of racers, including defending champion Alberto Contador, who lost over a minute of time. So remember, ladies: Keep your elbows off the table—and also away from competitive bike racers.
