Unfortunately, not all riders will make it. Some will get injured and become unable to complete the Tour. Others, however, may encounter things outside of their control and impede their finish.

Either way, these riders aren't stopping for anything...unless it's a car? No. Not even that.

11. This dog that didn't know where it was.

10. These Tour de France enthusiasts that just want to talk.
