Cheating accusation fuels Tour de France stage 18 victor Arnaud Demare

Cheating accusation fuels Tour de France stage 18 victor Arnaud Demare

Four-time Tour de France victor Chris Froome was upended by a French policeman and taken off of his bike during stage 17 of the race.

The collision occurred on Wednesday during the 65-kilometer stretch from Bagneres-de-Luchon and Saint-Lary-Soulan.

The officer realized his mistake and helped Froome pick up the bike.

In frustration, Froome then swore at the cop. Spectators recorded video of the altercation. "I was going at some speed so I came obviously, but it was just a misunderstanding".

Team Sky has employed a personal bodyguard for Froome and additional security, while the Tour has employed extra security in the wake of recent terror attacks in France.

The previous day a number of riders were hit with pepper spray after protesters threw bales of hay onto the road along the route from Carcassonne to Bagneres-de-Luchon.

It is the first victory this year for a French team in the race.

The only incident in an otherwise tiresome stage raced in searing hot temperatures came 105km from the finish when Colombian Nairo Quintana, fifth overall after his stage win on Wednesday, hit the asphalt when he and Briton Adam Yates were caught in a pile-up.

The 19th stage at the Tour de France, the 200.5km run from Lourdes to Laruns, gets under way at 11.05am (BST) and is scheduled to reach KMO at 11.15am. Team Sky's Tom Dumoulin is now in second place.

Thursday's trek includes a 172-kilometer ride from Trie-sur-Baise to Pau.

A French team has finally won a stage in this year's Tour de France when Arnaud Demare of Groupama-FDJ comfortably claimed a sprint victory in the 18th stage.
