LOOK: Tour de France rider uses fan's camper for natural break

When you gotta go you just gotta go, sometimes even right in the middle of the Tour de France.

Nature called upon French rider Arnaud Demare early in Saturday's Stage 14 in the Alps but he didn't settle for the traditional "natural break" as its euphemistically called in cycling, by going on the side of the road using the natural surroundings. Instead Demare pulled up to a fan watching on the side of the road in his camper to see if he could use some actual facilities.

For once a cyclist was probably happy to see fans on the side of the road because race reports suggested it wasn't your regular natural stop but instead more along the lines of some ... distress.

Demare entered the stage 164th out of 172 riders remaining, close to three hours behind leader Vincenzo Nibali so if he were dropped from the peloton it wouldn't have mattered much but after his camper stop, Demare was able to get back in line with the peloton.
