No fan of Lance

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

A fan con­tin­ues to show up at ma­jor cy­cling races in Europe just to heckle Lance Arm­strong.

He was at the Tour of Lux­em­bourg in June, when he stood near the Ra­dioShack team bus and yelled “tricheur” at Arm­strong as he was be­ing in­ter­viewed by me­dia. Arm­strong fi­nally stepped on a rail­ing to bet­ter see the man be­fore yelling, “Say that to my face.”

Tricheur, in French, means cheat.

The fan was back Wed­nes­day for Stage 4 of the Tour de France. Po­si­tioned at the fin­ish line in Reims, he booed and yelled at Arm­strong as the cy­clist stood near his team’s bus. This time, the seven-time Tour de France cham­pion ig­nored him.
