Basically this.

Don't know about cyclo-cross, maybe take their cow-bells
away for a first infraction, but for the Grand Tours the
organisers should hire Adrien Hillairet to drive a lead-car
but instead of his France2TV Citroen give him a Hummer.

The pro's just need to pick up a video of "Chris Horner's Cyclocross Essentials" and learn some crowd control.

Or just go the Contador route and punch them when they get too close, that's just as effective.

Or this

Until they find a cure for idiocy this will continue to happen.

maybe you could hand a few day-glow jackets to some fans and call them stewards and that may keep a few in line.

Oh thanks, I didn't know the driver's name...

Leif Hoste, Guerrini and co, it wasn't exactly the same problem than the one with Sven Nijs, here the drunk guy trew a beer on him, it's made with a real purpose (even if he was drunk).

Arm the rider's jersey with electric stuff, so anyone who touches the riders will get shocked

or killing them is the easier choice probably

To be fair the Guerini incident was more of a dumb accident rather then a malicious act.

In the case of Nys, the fans should've done something.

Yes, I regularly get glasses of beer thrown at me while shopping, riding on my commute, working, etc.

Sports attract morons. Classical music doesn't, for instance.

That's because there is sports. If there's something else, like Facebook parties or firework or something similar, they will go there. Can't solve it without making life unbearable for the rest of us (by which I mean constant police controls and massive tax increases to pay for the policing needed to solve the effects of the lack of decency in society).
