Hang on a second. Am I correct in thinking that this Hepburn kid won the prologue, won a mountain stage and finished second in a bunch sprint, all in the first four stages?
I have finally looked at the video of the finish.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-vG7lglwkw 40sec in shows the finish

It appears Hepburn crossed in about 5th or 6th and seems to make a small deviation and some slight contact with the 3rd placed Italian.

Idiotic.
not relevant really. I mean you can make such examples in basically everything, what's the point?

Like I said, he is a young kid, trying to make his way into the sport, disrespectful and immature behaivour isn't gonna help his case.
Sometime's personal pride needs to be put aside.
