Tear gas stops Tour de France near Carcassonne
Farmers who were protesting about a cut in state aid blocked the Tour de France road 26km from Carcassonne.
National police used tear gas to break up the protest, but some of the tear gas was blown back into the peleton.
Team Sky’s overall leader Geraint Thomas, was seen in some difficulty following the incident.
Medical officers handed out eye drops to riders, including green jersey points leader Peter Sagan.
“After a 15 minute-long interruption caused by protesters, the race is back on," organisers said in a brief statement on letour.fr.
