    Notice the fat b1tch getting involved. If anyone hit her back there`d be an outcry.

    And yes he did deserve it, he wouldn`t be allowed that close in a velodrome.

    The tripper went too far. The runner was just having some harmless fun, but the tripper was having harmful fun.

    There are stewards to deal with that. From a spectator that is assault.


    `....the fat b1tch getting involved.`

    OK, that`s what this meant to you.

    That was incredibly uncool of the tripper. He was just being mean.

    The way I see it, the tripper was just policing his own.

    When I was in France, one of the things I loved was that you could get right up close to a race, whether it was a rally race or a race like Tour De France. I can`t say that I`ve ever witnessed anything as intimate here in the states. There are usually police barricades everywhere.

    The tripper is doing his part to ensure their events over there don`t turn into the American style events.

    Another thing I enjoyed was going to professional Rugby matches and getting to stand on the sidelines just because we were American. Do you really think the security at a professional football game in America would let someone stand on the sidelines just to show hospitality? Hell no!

    In America, when a jackhole runs out onto a baseball field, instead of our fans putting them in check, we encourage it by laughing and applauding. It`s two completely different cultures when it comes to sports.

    Dumbass got what he deserved. He did no worse than the police at this years tour. For those that don`t watch the police would ride up along the spectators like this guy and either push them off the road with their motorcycle or physically push them.

    Some of these `fans` take it way to far. It`s all good to cheer on a rider but have some bit of respect. All it takes is one mess up and half a group is going down.

    oh and keep your dogs on a drating leash if you`re going to watch the tour.

    He richly got what he richly deserved!
    Actually, he deserved arrest for his stupid `stunt`. I hope the cop who came over did just that.

    Anyone have a `follow-up` to the story?

    These idiots only run along with the riders to get attention, not to encourage them or any other reason. As soon as they stop, they`ll call their friends at home to ask if they were on tv. If they weren`t, they`ll try again. If they were...They`ll try again! They`re attention whoring morons who deserve whatever they get. This guy got exactly the attention he deserved. The only thing that would`ve made this more perfect is when he confronted him, the `tripper` had knocked him right back on his ass again.

    The dude was just running along side the biker. I`m not certain why he would "deserve" to get tripped.

    Why would showing support for your favorite riders/team and/or trying to get a photo op with one of them be a *trippable* offense?

    Seems to me the guy in the blue shirt is guilty of an unprovoked assault.
