Tour de France cycling and Swiss dinosaurs

This video says about itself:

Thousands of dinosaur footprints have been discovered in the Swiss Jura region, making it one of the world’s biggest track sites. The discoveries — and the great interest in the area – have prompted the authorities to consider turning the site into a tourist and archaeological attraction.

Today, a stage of Tour de France cycling race finished in Porrentruy in the Swiss Jura mountains. The stage was won by Thibaut Pinot from France.

The cyclists, just before the finish, passed a big dinosaur statue in a roundabout. The Tour de France TV helicopter also showed a dinosaur image, carved into the earth. This is because of the dinosaur discoveries of Porrentruy town.
