My name is Mathew Mitchell, 30-something from Staffordshire, UK. Over the last few years I've got more and more into cycling, from the first innocent Sportive events to Audaxes, Go-Races, British Cycling racing and now Time Trials.

    It’s frustrating to see inconsiderate spectators during pro bike racers.

    • It’s definitely not ideal…I’d say the incidents are quite rare though thankfully considering how many people line up to watch races.

      The four I’ve posted are 15 years apart and I’m struggling to think of any major ones in between (though I’m sure there are some).
