Caisse d'Epargne vs Quick Step

Rui Costa vs Carlos Barredo

Spain vs Spain  ;D

Rui Costa (Caisse d'Epargne) wrests a front wheel away from Carlos Barredo (Quick Step) after the Spaniard hit Costa with it following the stage 6 finish. Photos  | Cyclingnews.com

There are several photos of the throat grabbing, wheel throwing and floor wrestling via the above link.

I have not seen that sort of action at the TdF before.  :facepalm:

There is a video of it on Dutch tv. I'll post a link later. Cyclists in cleats shouldn't fight. Those skinny arms flailing about isn't a good look.

Cyclists really can't do fighting.  Here's a training movie they should study..

No head-butting with helmets, so wheels are next best thing.
If you don't like your democracy, vote against it.

Good job they don't carry frame pumps these days.
You are in a maze of twisty flat droves, all alike.
