    Yeah. My take is 'not malicious'.

    - He knows how to handle a bike.
    - Who in their right mind would cause themselves to crash!?
    - He was being squeezed and the move looks to be an reactive push/shove that turned into a grab once he was into the railing and shitting himself.

    Without the barriers there there would be a different story.

    He rode stupidly, but not maliciously IMO. He should get a suspension for dangerous riding, but it wasn't a delibrate crash. If you wanted to tip someone off there are plenty of ways of doing it without nearly killing yourself in the process.

    Love classic1, who himself been fined for stupidly but not delibrately knocking blokes off . :D

    Exactly!
    Guys on the CN forum are saying he deliberately "grabbed his jersey and dragged him to the ground". Idiots

    I tried to ignore it for about 12 hours, but couldn't any longer :D

    Mr Gunty is providing brilliant analysis. Anyone who disagrees with Mr Gunty on any issue is clearly ill-informed and wrong.

    Today something made me think about how quick we Australians claim overseas born successful people as our own. Here is a sample of how it usually works, before and after the fall.

    I still can't believe some of the bullshit I'm reading about Bos:

    "Bos deserves to be suspended for at least two years and charged with assault in a criminal court."

    Another guy:

    "it is clear Bos grabbed firmly the jersey of Impey and throws him into the barriers. I can't get any other conclusion"

    Speaking of before and after pics, I still can't get over what's happened to Ann Wilson from Heart. Ok, people get old, but did she have to gain 100kg? :p

    I watched it for about 30 times after. I was disappointed it was not mailicious, when I came to my conclusion. Because he could have got a spot in WWE.

    It is a visual illusion. Boss was coming down. He hit the barriers, perhaps 30 metres before he took Impey down. He grabbed him earlier though.

    What happens if you are standing still, and a bike rider, going at 60, is grabbed by you. If you get he shoulders, his lower body on the bike will pull him forward.

    Boss had slowed, and the appearance of this roundhouse, was actually Boss going backwards in the peloton, because he was slowing. The stupid prick still had hold off Impey's jersey so his arm is propelled forward.

    The he finally goes down, after hitting the barriers before, but his final action is to correct himself, by using Impey as an achor, to right his own (Bos') bike.

    Thus, there is an appearance of this roundhouse sling. But nothing of the kind, in my take.

    Thats not the chick from Heart. Thats Rosanne Barr.

    In any case, those Heart chicks should be killed for inflicting 'All I Wanna Do is Make Love to You' on the world.

    I have seen Graeme Brown do worse things.

    I think the worse was down in either Sorrento, or some coastal town in the Bay Crits. There was a moving van, parked on the edge of the road, the road was bordered by gravel and dirt, but those vans, just the white shit box Asian courier vans, has those sharp edges on the steel bumper.

    Brown rode MCewen almost off the road, onto the dirt, but definitely towards the van. It was one of the most stupid things I have seen.

    The Tom Steels incident, from Brown, was just Brown having shit peloton skills imo. He never knew Steels have moved up and started his sprint and was half wheeling him, and was probably gonna blow his doors off, as Brown has just started to open up his sprint.

    That move, was just Brown not caring, but the result of no periperhal vision, peloton awareness, and peloton craft imo. I dont think he intentionally crashes someone like that. He intentionally rides guys to the barriers, and will step into them, and stop em from coming around.

    He learnt from the best.

    Mcewen almost killed Guidi at the 98 Denmark Rund, putting him into the barriers, Guidi had to go to hospital, and the Italian mafia shaped up to fight in the staging area. Mcewen was surrounded by the Italians, led by Petacchi, who was Guidi's domestique then. But they never went the knuckle, cos the Italians have no balls. MCewen faced em down.

    fucking hilton clarke having his say too.

    Has Australia produced a more annoying cyclist?

    "We're very disappointed," Clarke said. "We did the work and they took it off us. We're not happy. I don't think we'll put the boys on the front. We'll make it as dangerous as possible I think."
