However, I feel bad for the woman who caused it. What she did was a stupid mistake versus intentionally interfering with the race:
Police hunt for Tour de France fan, who caused crash
Prosecutors in Brittany have launched a criminal inquiry after the unidentified female caused a massive crash during the Tour de France and went on the run. She could be jailed for up to a year.

Of course, I also feel bad for the cyclists injured. Just a horrible thing all around. 🙁
Update June 30, 2021: She’s been found:
Spectator holding sign causing massive Tour de France crash arrested after being on run
The woman is being held in police custody and faces fines of up to 1,500 euros.
