Tour of Turkey Final Sprint

This is the reason that guys shouldn’t be taking their hands off of the bars during a bike race to push another rider. Theo Bos (Rabobank Continental) should of been using his hands to pull his brakes instead of whatever he was doing. The officials totally screwed up the ruling with no penalty or sanction. This hand tapping/pushing is occurring constantly now in US racing and is total bullshit. If you click here on and watch one of the videos of the whole last kilo, you’ll see a bunch of riders falling. It isn’t good bike racing.

    well, it’s not like it’s never been seen before. As a matter of fact, there’s this movie called “Breaking Away” which has a scene in which this sort of tactic is depicted… If it weren’t common at that time (33 years ago), I don’t think it would have been in the film.
