Fans of Le Tour de France

This is El Diablo (aka 57 year old Didi Senft of Germany). He has been attending multiple stages of Le Tour de France each year since 1993.

He often travels ahead of the race in a custom-decorated camper vehicle, picking various locations for the race to pass by. While waiting for the race, he paints small white tridents on the road.

When the riders arrive, El Diablo will run beside them waving his trident to make the riders go faster (if only to get away from him).

He gets more TV time than some of the lower ranked riders in Le Tour.

And then there is this guy. Either he's a big Lance Armstrong fan, or George W Bush is drinking again.
