Director of The Tour de France

Claim:
I'm a big fan of cycling: I ride every day, and and I follow the pros. But it strikes me as un-environmental that the TDF riders randomly toss their water bottles into the French countryside. If F1 drivers tossed empty fast food bags into the streets of Monaco, or pro skiers threw empty wrappers from their pockets in the starting gate, we'd all be up in arms. You need to clean up your sport's environmental image - and specifically, ban tossing empty water bottles into nature. If riders can't pee off their bikes within city limits on Tour, why can they pollute with no consequence?
