How Tacky

The 14th stage of the Tour de France has been marred by sabotage. Some bastard threw tacks on the course causing 30 riders to receive dreaded punctures. Last years winner, Cadel Evans, was forced to stop three times due to punctures while another rider broke his collarbone after riding over the nails. Interestingly, the tacks appeared after the Spanish rider, who eventually one the stage, had ridden past.

Very Tacky

OK, who’s the wiseguy who threw friggin tacks all over a four mile stretch of road during the annual Seattle-to-Portland bike ride? Sheez, one rider was taken to hospital after falling off his bike and several were left  patching their tires.
