    Cyclists Fined for Urinating in Public
    Updated: Thursday, Jul. 29, 2004 - 5:54 PM

    BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) - When you gotta go, you gotta go. Eight cyclists
    participating in the Tour de Hongrie each were fined $40 on Thursday for
    urinating in public during the race, officials said.

    "If this had happened by a farm field, race judges probably would have
    ignored it," said race spokesman Roland Gombkoto. "But since it happened
    right in front of spectators, it could damage the popularity of the race and
    the sport."

    The incident took place Wednesday in the town of Nagykonyi, about 100 miles
    southwest of the capital, Budapest, during the second stage of the seven-day
    race covering 530 miles.

    Gombkoto said the three Hungarian and five foreign cyclists stopped but did
    not get off their bicycles while relieving themselves during the 103-mile
    second stage between Balatonfoldvar and Pecs.

    Australian Phil Thuaux won the stage in 3 hours, 59 minutes, 9 seconds, and
    retained the yellow jersey traditionally worn by the race leader.

    Sounds like a failure of stage planning. Or just guys being jerks.
