    So nobody notices this? [spoiler]

    So the Bos incident gets press, but some nobody swinging at Cavendish while doing 35 mph doesn't?

    Happens somewhat often. No one went down, no big deal.

    Yeah, bdcheung brought it up.

    I thought it was pretty insane. From what Cavendish said, the other rider knocked into his bars and then he pushed him away.

    I saw the video. Honestly, it was pretty aggressive. I am really surprised nobody went down even with top notch bike handling skills those particular riders have.

    Why? Because he doesn't feign modesty? Helen Keller knows he's the fastest sprinter in the world, and she's blind, deaf, and dead.

    You must have thought of that a while ago and been saving it for just the right moment. . .

    To RichinPeoria, it's not arrogance if you can do it, and Cavendish can sure as hell do it. He's won something like 85% of his sprints this year. The respect and gratitude he shows to his team after every victory says a lot IMO.

    There's a vid on YouTube of the leadup to the sprint.

    Cavendish is as guilty as the other guy. He's lucky half the field didn't go down.

    Yeah he can back it up but remarks like calling the rest "Jr racers" is going too far. It's those type of remarks that make me dislike the guy. He's going to regret that one at some point in this tour.

    I saw Cavendish getting bumped then giving it right back. Track experience most helpful. Robbie McEwen would've done the same thing; then at the finish line tracked him down and beat the crap out of him.

    It seemed on Stage 3 the other sprinters were too scared to come out and race so Columbia just popped open a can of whoop ass on most of the peleton. Awesome.

    Cavendish has made a few regrettable remarks but this past year he's been much more polite and diplomatic. And he's what, 24 years old, the fastest sprinter in the world and getting faster.

    How many riders went down? How many bones were broken? What, none?

    There is no comparison between the two incidents.

    He usually congratulates and thanks his teammates first after he wins. He gives them a lot of credit. Personally I am big fan of the kid, he is awesome and fun to watch.

    I think he's used the 'Helen Keller knows' bit before. Still friggin' hilarious though.

    I miss McEwen...

    If Cav can dominate the sprints by jumping ship onto other trains and doing the crazy crap that robbie did, then he might become my favorite with robbie. Till then, it's McEwen.

    Stage 2 video. At the 4:17 mark. See the riders about 6 back from the front.

    The whole video clip is great.

    (I added the #t=4m10s to the link to make it start at that time)

    Do you have a link? They mentioned the "jr racers" comment on VS this morning, but I haven't been able to find the whole quote.

    He definitely says some bonehead things sometimes, but, like I said, I think the respect he shows his teammates sort of balances out.

    It really looks like the skil-shimano rider was drifting back and getting in Cav's way and Cav just put a hand out to the dude's hip to push him off a little.

    He wasn't happy about that and pushed back harder.

    1) His hands stayed on the bars (EDIT: oops i only saw the Versus replay from yesterday, guess there was more to it)
    2) He roughly kept his line (though his center of mass didn't)
    3) He looked like an elephant seal pummeling it's foe and made me lol
