Ex-Convicts to do Preamble in Tour de France

Ex-convicts will have the honor of providing the lead out to the first stage of the Tour de France in Corsica this year.

Al Jazeera reports from Corsica that ex-inmates can make a 40-mile ride ahead of the Tour de France this year.

Forty ex-prisoners will ride in formation ahead of the pro cyclists as part of their re-integration into society, according to a report by Al Jazeera.

No names, no descriptions of crimes, and no faces can be reported, according to the report.

Meanwhile, graffiti artists have painted anti-Corsican slogans along the roadway.

But what’s amazing to us, is their legs! They look like they have been riding in prison! One inmate says they were able to get out 10 times.

See the rest here.
