It starts with fans booing at Contador at the team presentation. Then a few stages in one the race, someone or some people throw beefsteaks at the Saxobank team car.
And today again, the fans on the Alpe who are witness to one of the great Tour stages in history boo and hassle Contador. One of the resulting pictures is going to be legendary.
But not only that, they also boo at Andy Schleck and also Thomas Voeckler as he passed through the "Dutch corner" (TV shows that Voeckler got extremely annoyed at that point). Voeckler apparently explained that he knows why the fans booed - because he did not wait for Johnny Hoogerland when the latter crashed into the barbed wire. Which strikes me as absurd. Also makes me wonder why these people go to such great efforts to watch the sport if they hate the leading protagonists so much.
