Runaway Umbrella Interrupts Tour De France

Stage six of the Tour de France is currently taking place, but there was nearly a mishap when a runaway umbrella—or a parasol, if you want to be technical about it since it was a sunny day—flew onto the course. It was blown right through the peloton. Several riders had to swerve to avoid it. Fortunately, it didn’t take out anyone.
