A bike rider who rode into the passenger side of a Mercedes as it stopped at an intersection on New Year’s Day responded by bashing the driver and taking off with the luxury convertible. Witnesses said they saw the cyclist and bike fly over the bonnet and straight under the car. The cyclist then yelled to “reverse up” and when the driver got out to see if he was OK the rider went all commando on him, punching him repeatedly in the face before jumping behind the wheel and taking off. To add salt into the wound , the Merc wasn’t his, he had borrowed it from a friend.Oh and did I forget to mention the bike was stolen. Happy 2014.
I read an article a few weeks ago that said that if the Olympic Games governing body really and truly cracked down on drugs cheats the event would not see a world record broken for many decades (if ever) and no one would watch. Which brings me to today’s breaking news about cycling legend Lance Armstrong. As sad as it was to see him stripped of his Tour de France titles, my first reaction was to feel sincerely sorry for those who came second, but unfortunately two of those riders, Jan Ullrich and Ivan Basso, have also served doping bans.
Even sadder was Armstrong’s claims he was innocent and simply decided to stop fighting the doping allegations. If he was truly innocent I would have hoped he would have fought tooth and nail to defend those charges and the integrity of his sport. I suspect his decision to withdrawal his appeal was to stop the release of evidence the US anti-doping agency USADA had against him. A very, very sad day in sport.
It seems when it comes to slow moving men on push bikes on small country lanes, Gloucestershire women in Lycra have very little tolerance, especially when stuck behind them in their cars. The fact that she was able to jog up to the fool and lay in to him, indicates he was going at a snail’s pace and probably deserved a little tongue whipping. Unfortunately the Gloucestershire police don’t seem to see it the same way and are wanting the pair to come forward. I’m guessing the kung fu kicking and slapping went a little too far!
You know what I hate? When you get taken out by a leaping wildebeest while competing in a mountain bike race in South Africa, I really friggin hate that!
No one warned me about chaffing
Attention Portlanders, the police would just like to ask all the cyclist competing in the World Naked Bike Ride to wear a helmet and shoes to avoid any potential injuries. Thank you.
Psst It’s legal in portland to be naked in public, just in case you were wondering!
Riccardo “Cobra” Ricco, an Italian cyclist, is in hospital with kidney failure after he allegedly gave himself a blood transfusion with a three week old sample. Sheez, I wouldn’t even touch three week old bread for goodness sakes. Anywho, serious concerns are now being raised about “doping” within the Vacansoleil-DCM team. Ricco was banned from cycling for 20 months in 2008 after testing positive for a blood booster during the Tour de France and was on the comeback trail. If found guilty of doping Ricco may face three years jail. He currently remains in a serious condition in hospital.
Want sauce with that?
