John Degenkolb at Paris-Roubaix 2014 (but perhaps happy to be 2nd, I guess)


He said in the interview afterwards that he was celebrating having won the bunch sprint for second (and doing so well, against such a field, at his age), rather than that he'd thought he'd won. And his celebration (with only one arm) hardly looked as if he'd thought he'd won.

I love this thread already. Exactly these moments are why Tom Boonen now does a bike-throw every time. Even when he has like 50 meters. He was the other guy way too often :D

Wow, Henderson actually looked back and saw the real cyclists and then he decided to raise his arms. So moronic, he should have been kicked out for sure.

Guardini actually said he got confused and not sure he had won when he saw Henderson

Aijj! I missed the bit with Henderson! I heard the speaker talk about it, but I couldn't actually see it.


I... couldn't actually see the one with Boaro either.

false celebration has become a kind of fashion now ;)
esp with so many stages ending in circuits.
Cycling is interesting only because the line between the improbable and the attainable is not clear.

I have a bit of an explanation as to why it sometimes happens, this is particular for the Boaro-incident yesterday.
Basically they enter the circuit, ride almost the entire circuit before crossing the line to begin the three circuits. Maybe Boaro simply thought they were counting the circuits from the moment they entered the circuit. I and the people standing next to me certainly had our doubts

About the Henderson-incident (and yes, I know he was kidding!); it took a few seconds for me to realise that him and his companions were not, in fact, in the front [SIZE="2"]about the time it took for the peloton to arive a few seconds later.[/SIZE]
