Who cares really - its just some water.

If the guy bumped into him was he meant to say sorry can you not do that I´m standing here.

People react worse than this daily on public transport - just some water and he said sorry to Cav - bigger things in the world to fry

Exactly, "Looks like". The video is totally inconclusive and people AT THE SCENE say different to you. YOU are making stuff up from the video of which you WERE NOT AT THE SCENE and the video CLEARLY does NOT show.


You are telling lies and making things up.

If Cadel has Aspergers this would explain a lot of his behaviour. He is incredibly guarded about what he says in TV interviews and seems a little socially awkward. In his unguarded post race moments he has had a series of inappropriately aggressive actions which I am sure he later regrets.

He comes across better in written interviews and is quite insightful, even witty in his blog postings.

Still it would appear as though most people on the CN forum have already made their own character assessments about him which today's incident will only reinforce.
 
I actually thought it was a pretty funny way of showing his dissatisfaction towards that vittel guy. Hitting Cav was an honest accident of course...

As for whether he's Asperger. He could be... which of course would mean that I'd have to stop making slightly fun of his behaviour...
 
Certainly, the French would say: "What a douche".:) (seems french showers can't get passed the word filter)
Anyhow, Cadel clearly apologized to Cav and probably earned a few brownie points with some of the other sprinters, in the process.
Nowhere near as funny as Barredo's wheel wielding.

If Evans thought the security guy was the Wicked Witch of the West, then there's a case to be made for attempted murder.

At least he didn't unleash the flying monkeys, perhaps a consideration on the question of clemency.

Priceless :D

Every year a movie shows up with Evans doing stuff like this. Stop making such a big deal out of it. It's fun.

Typical Evans, no biggy. Even headbutting would be fine, Cav has done his share of that as well.

He should apologise to the nameless worker as well, especially even. He was disrespectful and arrogant and that's no way to behave as a professional athlete. 100% *******.
 
Or Cav could issue a hilarious threat, like when he challenged Ventoso (who hadn't been in the autobus once in the race) to ride in the autobus "to see what I have to go through" (read: so my teammates who are bigger than me can bully you). "I challenge you to ride worse than normal!"

To be fair his response was fine he didn't whine or moan about it. He obviously didn't fancy challenging Cadel to rude in bus.

really ozpsychofan? thoughtforfood is making things up? it's cadel who is inventing a story here to cover his poor character and bad behavior the video speaks for itself. as does the "don't touuch me" from years past. it is a pattern. all evidence points to malicious intent and your girl Evans isnt a victim here.

wait didn't Evans get the memo that pre and post stages are crowded and a little pushy? Why is he always acting like it is his first trip to the dance and pouting like no one asked him to dance?

he is a panzy plain and simple

"cadel evans is John Coltrane of excuses" (to quote bike snob) on and off the bike

I support a poodle free peloton.
 
Instead of concentrating on Cadel we should be lambasting Hincapie and Burghardt, they should of been shielding him from crowd its a disgrace Cadels weak team letting him down again!

This needed its own thread?

And unless you're a licensed psychologist, please stop the pseudo-psychological diagnosing.
