This little girl is the most passionate Tour de France fan

VRT/SporzaShe’s really, really into this bike race.

It’s been a great Tour de France this year with lots of surprises and the youngest-ever winner in Colombian phenom Egan Bernal of Team Ineos.

The fans have been pretty great, too, and this might the most passionate of them all – a bespectacled little girl sitting on (presumably) her father’s shoulders, cheering the riders roadside on stage 20.

Elsewhere, back on stage 18, the then race leader Julian Alaphilippe of the Deceuninck-Quick Step team reportedly had relatives visiting him postrace, and he gave his leader’s yellow-jersey jacket to a shivering young boy.

On stage 15, three-time world road champ Peter Sagan of the Bora-Hansgrohe team gave a fan his autograph midrace.

The three-week Tour ends Sunday in Paris on the Champs-Élysées. Bernal is expected to cross the finish line as the youngest-ever winner of the race at age 22.
