The real question in my mind is how can anybody stand there without grabbing that? And I'm 41...
"I'm pleased with the way I handled that moment because a few years ago I might have thrown my toys out of the pram and chucked my bike down the ravine!
But if it was a girl grabbing another girls ass on the podium, it's alright..... right????

Not condoning the groping incident at all, that was definitely a huge error in judgment on his part. But the way he rides is incredibly entertaining.
Last year the girl had a piece of paper to sign and got an unwelcome mural across her chest. In my book it borderlines on assault.

I take great pride in my humility.
^This has gone a bit off track.
I think Keith99 brought up Coppi and Anquetil because of the questionable morality of some of their romantic entanglements.
Coppi, though married, went after another man's wife.
Anquetil maintained a menage a trois with his wife, and wife's daughter.
^Uneven playing field!
Shouldn't the women at least get hunky guys to do that to?
There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.
Like the celebrations! If Cancellara and the girl don't care, why should it bother anyone else? If it does, he should apologize. Should the team reprimand him or cycling fine him? Go ahead, but in my opinion that would be like giving the middle finger to a bad driver...it won't change a thing.
As for T-shirt? Nope, don't dig that, but that's just like my opinion, man. Live and let live! Vive le tour!
I don't think there was any photoshop job. It all just all fitted nicely to point in the same direction. Grabbing a$$ (uncalled for), signing boobs/cleavage (when all what he was offered to sign was a piece of paper) and that obnoxious t-shirt.
Anyway, I think he's young and kinda immature, and hopefully has been talked to by advisors regarding decorum.
Really glad he apologized to that girl. And publicly too. It was the right thing to do.
