Robin Williams joins the caravan

National Post | Film star Robin Williams joins legion of fans heading to L'Alpe d'Huez

Robin Williams has joined the Tour caravan, riding today in the US Postal team car, while Sheryl Crow hitched a ride with the race doctor on the course.

Williams will join 1 million cycling fans expected to line the road up to L'Alpe d'Huez, 200,000 more than last year. Crowds are already thick enough that officials have closed the roads almost a day early, according to Maroussia Perez-Perrot, press officer at the local town hall.

Fans are camping out "in tents, in fields, on rocks," Perez-Perrot said. "It's very unusual."
