Wonder if they'll crack down a bit on the 'runners' next year at the race. I can see it getting out of hand soon if it gets bigger next year and more people show up in circus mode.
lol. i saw that on the feed and was suprised no one brought it up.

Rider's fiancée hit by police motorcycle
A police motorcycle hit a 20-year-old woman during Sunday's Clasica Almería in Spain. She is now in critical condition. Early reports indicate the woman is the fiancée of Andorra-GrandValira cyclist Eduardo Padres.
According to sportwereld.be, the woman was watching the race when she saw Padres at the head of the peloton. She ran alongside to cheer him on and the Guardia Civil motorcycle accompanying the race was unable to avoid hitting her.
Reports indicated she suffered a fractured skull and two broken legs. (SW)
Did he really hit him? It almost looks like he's grabbing his shoulder...
Yes he did. The television view from that jab was from behind the group.
In my experience, it's best not to f**k with guys named Mick.
Cyclists of the world, unite! You have nothing to lube but your chains!
A three word post and you didn't get it right? tsk. tsk.
Oh yeah, the guy went down. Beautiful. I'm surprised you don't see it happen more often.
Anyone remember Hincapie, Paris-Roubaix, years ago?
I can't remember the year but he cleaned some guys clock that was getting way to close. It was great.
I'll try to find some more info.
Reminds me of a cyclocross clip I ran across awhile ago of this guy NAILING a bystander with a KICK to the head. I can't seem to find it though... anybody got any ideas?
about 1:00 in..
Video doesn't really show how good the contact was though (or what the spectator did to deserve it).

Reminds me of the part in A Dog in a Hat where Joe backhanded the Polish guy while in the peleton of some race in Mexico.
What, this one?
