Columbians are at it too, three have been suspended, they all came from the same team, there is also speculation about Bernal, that he never fractured his collarbone, but has been pulled out because he is being looked at, he was training a couple of days after his crash, on the road.

Many cyclists have done that...notably Skujins after his ToC crash in 2017...it was particularly crazy to me since he suffered a concussion. Hell I tried to ride 11 days after breaking my scapula, a much more serious fracture. Your muscles attached to the scapula/shoulder blade are responsible for moving the upper arm around the shoulder socket whereas the clavicle is just strut.

In a break 15 minutes ahead, Polanc leading by quite a margin virtually. Interesting how will this stage develop!

Looks like he had a bad day and lost it. Normally Marco Haller seems like a nice guy.

The "fan" 100% deserved the spray he copped and is lucky to not have copped a smack in the mouth for his efforts.

I’d say Marco Halley was remarkably nice to that person, and seems like a good guy in general. He showed great restraint there.

Yeah, but what is worse: a pre-race jagoff like that, or the crazies that light off smoky flares in tight racing spaces?

Both deserve a swift smack in the mouth and ejection/banning from ever spectating at any other event.

I rode this week (a bit) with an Ineos Pro, an Endura pro and the Aussie national champ (didn’t know who he was so luckily didn’t make the “who does he think he is wearing full kit” comment out loud). As a VERY average cyclist it’s incredible to get that kind of access to top flight professionals which I don’t think any other sport has. My point is that idiots like the above will soon prevent this kind of access.

That would be very sad and I hope you're wrong.
