It's probably similar situation as with Grivko/Kittel or Boeckmans/Jules- it really makes no sense for Moreno to act like that if there was no prior action from the other side. What we saw was probably just reaction to that, but still, shameful.Eagle said:
It makes it hard to believe Moreno lost his mind all of a sudden without provocation but it's inexcusable.silvergrenade said:
In the video above you could see what Rosa did. He threw an elbow when Moreno passed him and probably pushed him out of the way. It looked like a tamed elbow. You didn't even noticed. Then Moreno slowed down and threw a punch. Not satisfied with the punch he pushed him out into the crowds. Not comparable if you ask me.Põhja Konn said:Both of them deserve to be thrown out of the race, no doubt. Punishing only Moreno would send out a wrong message, as his initial elbow shown in the video clip had to be a reaction to something that Rosa did or said prior to it. Provocation and the ensuing reaction should always be punished in equal measure, at least in sporting competitions. Acting otherwise would openly endorse devious attitude and behaviour within a competition.
I only saw Moreno bumping Rosa, but yeah, if he also played the game he should be DSQ as well. For the race tho, I can live with Rosa not being thrown out. I think he is a great rider.Brullnux said:
