Ahh, excuses, excuses. Do you see others behaving this way inside and outside of the peloton?
But HE is of the POS type who'll spit in your face and punch you in your face if given half the chance.
OPQS should get rid of this virus ASAP. Worst sign-up IMV.
Polti's Jeroen Blijlevens was disqualified after the finish in Paris after he started a fight with Bobby Julich and struck him several times in the head. The Tour jury disqualified him not only in the last stage classification, but also in the overall classification. So there were only 127 finishers in this year's Tour.
"Julich hindered me intentionally several times, the same as Backstedt did on Saturday. I wanted to talk to him after the race, but he keep nagging me. I gave him some friendly taps," said Blijlevens afterward.
Two examples of heat of the moment reactions. The first is unacceptable and to my knowledge Cavendish has not exhibited. The second, while wrong, is still understandable given the danger the moto put Cippo in.
But you have no idea about Cavendish's real demeanour in the bunch or off the bike other that a few snippets from highly charged events. If he is such an odious character why is it that he is not baulked in the bunch and prevented from winning? Why is it that those that I have spoken to who actually know him well professionally still praise him despite no longer being in his employ?
