After winning stage 2 Cav was criticising Farrar saying he is always swinging from right to left in the sprint and now he is going around as if he never did anything wrong on a sprint himself.
Ferrari never saw Cav when he moved out right and took him down. Cav did see Haussler but he still made that stupid move when he cut across him.
Ferrari deserves the criticism he is getting from a racing perspective for the stupid move he did, but some of the criticism he is getting is making him out to be some sort of criminal. Give me a break.
Like Sean Kelly said it is bike racing and unfortunately this won`t be the last crash we see in a sprint. The way people are going around it is as if this crash was the first one they ever seen in a finishing sprint.
Italians riding Italian bikes, are generally better bike handlers then riders from other countries. What Ferrari did was make an unnecessary move and cause A CRASH WHICH WAS UNAVOIDABLE to the other riders. It happens, in bunch sprints in races like the GIRO and TOUR. All the riders (SPRINTERS)want face time for themselves and sponsors.
Again, watching old footage of Italians great bike handlers, and every Italian bike(or copy of Italian Racing geometry) is something magnificent to behold.
