Train hard for 6 to 8 hours a day for months and months, and years and years. Take care of your body, the food you eat, keep yourself healthy to avoid sickness. Go to the most interesting stage race in the world (sorry, the Tour is not my fav), get a breakaway, hammer during 100+ kms, and break the f** chain with 400m to go, just when you had good legs and choose to attack. And here some of you saying he lacks manners? Man, I'd thorow my bike a hundred times ...

Poor David.

I would've done much worst than that. All that time of training going down to nothing. Poor David.

Under the circumstances I think he can be excused for throwing the bike. He really did look to have that sewn up.

So who would win the bike-discus throwing competition, Riis or Millar? Obviously Riis was probably hitting his infamous 60% during his famous throw in the ITT which I assume would help. I think Millar has stronger arms though, so it's a tough one to judge.

He looked comfortable and strong. If that happened to me, my bike would go into orbit :twisted:

Riis threw a 1997 Pinarello TT freak bike, Millar a 2008 6.8kg road bike.

It is hard to judge: Although Riis's bike undoubtedly weighed a lot more, it was also wing shaped, thus easier to throw further, because of the lift effect. Off topic question: If an Aussie would throw such a bike, would it come back to him? :roll:

I gave up golf when I realised I could sling the club further than I could top the ball :oops:

Be thankful these are all sports with small toys. In the absence of anything to throw, I kicked my racing dinghy after a particularly bad race, and broke two toes...

It's called "humour".

I think the sponsors would be ecstatic, everyone is checking out the video... they're in it for exposure. It's reputed that in UK car racing, slower drivers would wait until they were about to be lapped (hence on TV) then deliberately spin off the track (guaranteeing more TV...)
