Looks like they finally did it. Click for link to news conference snippet (in french, but subtitled)

(Mods: Sorry for the broken original link - must have CTRL+C'd and CTRL+D'd the wrong thing!)

Saw this on Velonews. Kind of funny:

"Mid-race the new Italian team Tagliatoro di Pietra decided on an unusual tactic without help from its team manager. They taped the feet of German team captain David Stohler to his pedals, an approach that seemed to work until Stohler stopped for a nature break and fell over on his side, rolling into the ditch still attached to his bike. Since the team car was unreachable by radio, team manager Christopher Dennis, busy updating his e-trade account on his iPhone, drove past Stohler. The German was only discovered several hours after the race, upside down in the ditch like a bug on its back, his bib shorts pulled down in a most undignified manner, pedaling furiously to produce body heat to combat the cold April winds that are so much a part of this race's tradition."

Why would you tape your feet to the pedals?

It was a RickRoll, but apparently one can get banned for that now.
