Tour de Bulls

Combine the Tour de France with the running of the bulls.

First, shorten the race course and confine it to a city, let's say Paris. Then start the race and release the bulls at various stages of the race. Riders may have to ride with, against or even across a rampaging herd of bulls and cattle.

       Would there be any point to this at all?

       Is there any point to either of them separately?
ldischler, Jul 24 2005
  

       While that is true [Idischler] surely it makes the fusion of the two even more nonsensical.
pooduck, Jul 25 2005
  

       You could have them riding the bulls for certain stages of the race.

       I don't think most of those guys would have sufficiently strong arms to lance the bulls correctly...

       Why confine it to a city? I say, hold different stages in different cities. That way you can get photos of lots of famous landmarks surrounded by cows.

       As a rule, all china shop doors must remain open for the duration of the running.   

       Let's see Lance Armstrong win this!

       I'm sure the bicyclists would appreciate it if you could find some draft oxen.

       Ouch! If someone fell off their bike, and started a gigantic pile-up and the bulls got there... ouch!   

       Bun!

       How very odd, that Picasso's bull looks like a bicycle seat. edit: it really was a bicycle seat!   

       + for the goofy idea

       Look out for next year when the leading cycle teams will be sporting a range of dull pastel colours with drab grey tubing.

       Combine lacrosse and golf and get speed relay golf tourneys over and done in an afternoon?

       Flaminicus, I think Jan Ullrich has adequate pythons to fling a lance.
