Nacer Bouhanni

Nacer gets mentioned a lot in race threads, but after searching I can't find a thread for him so...

He missed French Nats, and now he's out of the TdF. Unless the guy he punched had some kind of plague on his tooth, how could an injured finger keep him out of the TdF?

“It transpired that the wound was badly dealt with. With the situation deteriorating, Nacer was operated on at 6pm on Tuesday at the University Hosptial in Nancy.” WTH?! What hospital deals badly with minor lacerations?
 
if I was his teamboss I'd make him appear for a disciplinary commission or so, Cofidis misses his star rider in the biggest event for them of the year and by his own fault during his private time....

What a disaster for the team. Presumably after he cut his hand walloping someone, the cut got infected. So now they have a team that basically consists of a leadout train with no sprinter.
i d like to know what his teammates think of his adventure last weekend..., it will cost them a lot on bonuses during the TDF

It didn't surprise me one bit that Bouhanni got into this mess, and that he was stupid enough to not deal with it properly in terms of the medical help needed

It might be good for the team. Those guys can now be stage assassins because they have nothing to lose. Can Edet and Navarro do something?

Much of the point of signing Bouhanni in the first place was to move Cofidis from being the sort of team with a Tour based on always having a man in the break, always hoping to get lucky with a stage, to one with an actual leader to build around. They might still manage to get lucky by reverting to that traditional wildcard approach, but I doubt if they'd have picked a squad of guys who've basically been a leadout train all year for that given the choice.

Man that was stupid.. he needs to remember that he is his team's main asset and must therefore protect himself : avoid trouble, etc... He completely blew it here. Very stupid.

He's in my top ten list least favourite people. Pretty impressive that he managed to beat Donald Trump for spot 9
Hopefully Clinton is on that list too, unless you like people who get 200.000 dollar for a speech to a company. At least Trump is honest about what he does. Don't be blinded by the media, it's all propaganda, all paid by big companies. Do your own research.

*** Bouhanni btw

Sanders who will eventually support Clinton, if not i'll respect him a lot but we all know how politicians are. Hopefully Sanders stays true til the end.

It is perhaps unsporting to call him an "idiot," but he certainly is doing a dead-on impersonation of one.

Can't comment about the idiocy or otherwise of punching someone in a hotel corridor incident :) ...... but he seems to like using his fists a little too much. remember his Dauphine celebration?

Ohh a post on an actual thread about something serious..... Be gentle with me.
 
He talks about beeing a boxer after his cycling carrer is done. But he cant even throw a Punch without damaging his hands. Work on your technique Bouhanni. Dont land punches with your pinky man

He wouldn't be the first boxer to break his hand in a brawl, if you're used to punch with wrapped hands and boxing gloves you aren't an expert when it comes to bare knuckle fighting, that's probably the reason why Larry Holmes used a dropkick. :D
Back to Nacer, he's needs to calm down.
