You gotta pick and choose the time and place you take a selfie…which this cycling fan in Europe clearly didn’t do.

At the ‘Tour de France’ on Sunday, a “fan’s arm leaned too far into the road” while trying to take a selfie, making contact with American cyclist Sepp Kuss’ bike handlebar. This ultimately caused Kuss to swerve, leading to several of his fellow cyclists crashing into him.

“There was a spectator leaning into the road, I guess. It just happened suddenly and that’s part of the Tour, there are a lot of people,” Kuss said following stage 15 of the Tour, in an interview with Cycling News. “Ideally that wouldn’t happen, but it’s the biggest bike race in the world and a lot of people don’t know exactly what’s going on.”Sepp Kuss is currently in 6th position at the ‘Tour de France’. 

The lesson of this story is: Always look both ways before taking a selfie!
