Some soap bubbles, possible causes of falls in the Tour

Soap tour de france

The 2020 Tour de France started this Saturday with a more hectic first stage than expected.

In a totally atypical edition, the first partial did not want to be less and the countless falls starred in the chaotic race.

Nairo Quintana, Miguel Ángel López, Pavel Sivakov, Thibaut Pinot, Richie Porte or Andrey Amador were some of the many runners who wallowed on the asphalt of the Côte d'Azur.

Apparently the possible cause of so many falls could be the Tour de France advertising caravan itself. Specifically, a soap truck that, in order to advertise its brand, threw chemical products on the asphalt.

According to some present the mixture of the product with the light rain and the poor condition of the floor turned the road into a real skating rink.

Falls like George Bennett's, which occurs practically while standing still, could confirm this theory.

In sports, Alexander Kristoff finally took the cat into the water and thus managed to put on the first yellow jersey of the race.

The Norwegian surpassed world champion Mads Pedersen and a surprising Cees Bol at the finish line.
