I was sent this youtube video by a colleague at work this morning, it is unbelievable. How anyone in their right mind could actually think about doing this in a cycle race, let alone in a sprint finish is beyond me.
Watch the bottom of the video to see the Yellow Jersey leader Daryl Impey gets taken out by Theo Bos. Bos grabs Impey’s shirt and throws him into the barriers, taking himself out of the race as well.
Now I know cycling teams have all sorts of tactics and so on, but this is appalling and I hope that he faces a very long ban, amongst any other punishment that can be thrown at him.
