Was Bert pushed?
Because with my tinfoil hat on it looks like some sort of vendetta against Bert...blah...enemies in the peloton...blah...quiet complicity of other riders--> has a clinic feel.danjo007 said:and why is this in the clinic? seriously! ~fuopghys

Nevermind that Flecha nearly brought Voeckler down. Them Frenchies never fight fair.greenedge said:well the French had a hit out on the non-French riders in the break. They just needed to get rid of Luis and Casar/ Voeckler ( French riders ) would have won.

Lets not start 'filling out' details that weren't reported.JMBeaushrimp said:AC hooked his lever/hood under Vlad's seat rail, leaned on it and it came free - throwing him into the ditch.
Source?mikeNphilly said:no, his handlebars caught Karpets's seatpost and down he went.
You mean "filling out details" like for example Contador saying that this is what happened?? I agree - it's always more fun to ignore those bitstaiwan said:It is now.Lets not start 'filling out' details that weren't reported.
For the record this thread wasn't about the car crash. That wasn't suspicious.
Is there a source for Bert saying exactly that, or is what he said being extrapolated?JPM London said:You mean "filling out details" like for example Contador saying that this is what happened?? I agree - it's always more fun to ignore those bits
Well yes, but in the video a Saxo rider appears to turn and see Bert on the ground and then ride on, although he may be using his radio (guessing at his movements).JPM London said:By the way - if a rider in the middle of the peloton beats up another rider, wouldn't there be at least some sort of reaction from the surrounding riders. Not least from Conti's team mates??????
For example on the front page of cyclingnews.com there's an article...taiwan said:Is there a source for Bert saying exactly that, or is what he said being extrapolated?
And you would call that a "reaction" to his captain being beat up by a competing rider? What do you imagine he says over the radio? "Hey, Riis, someone just punched out that Spanish guy you brought to the team. Looked really funny!"...taiwan said:

"my handlebar got mixed up with Karpets' saddle”
The second adds detail. Just trying to keep the facts straight. Did you all watch the video?JMBeaushrimp said:AC hooked his lever/hood under Vlad's seat rail, leaned on it and it came free - throwing him into the ditch.
But how is it materially different?taiwan said:not equal to
Come on! So the video - hardly even showing who the involved riders were - is more fact about an assault than a simple statement of "it was an accident" from Conti? All the video shows is two riders swerving and one - the smaller - going off to the side - and no-one whatsoever reacting more than a quick glance... Sounds like a proper assault to metaiwan said:Just trying to keep the facts straight. Did you all watch the video?
