I had the opportunity to see le Tour de France in the Pyrénées twice; If you are in a pass, they generally are not all together, so you can have many pictures of the different bikers, and when they climb, their speed is lowered. I have been in the places a few days ago to have a better view (in my opinion).
Bonjour Jean Marc,
This is a perfect interpretation of this month's theme, to my choices for sure. Your main best conveys the sense of excitement with the cheering crowd the lone biker and the fellow running alongside. I notice vehicles behind some of the contestants, are these some form of protection? Some also seem to provide replacement bikes. Are there any rules about replacements? I like your high point of view, the inclusion of spectators, and the masses of #10. I see the car moves to the side here amities. Patricia

Then, answering your questions:
1) There is a car for each team with bike for replacement if broken, if their "gear" is not working properly or a tyre puncture, the red car is for the general manager of the race to check that there is no mistakes.
2) the road is blocked for the all day, the bikers don't meet other vehicules during their race, so no more protection. This year a biker has fallen while driving down a pass at 90 km/h and has had only a few bones broken......
