His side of the story. Sounds plausible. Like you can tell what really happened from a fuzzy You Tube video. Try not to be such pompous morons.

Christ, you're not seriously going to try and decide what sounds plausible or implausible at a) the front of a race or b ) in a sprint, are you?

"Bos, writing in Dutch on his blog, said that he grabbed Impey’s jersey out of instinct as he began to fall. “I'm completely trapped and I'm being pushed into the barriers on the left, and reflexively trying to keep him away from me as a last-ditch effort. At the moment it was the only right option to prevent a crash. With my front wheel, I believe I hit the foot of the barriers and then together with Impey, went sprawling.” "

Sounds like a racing incident to me.

Right. Either that or the guy became a homicidal maniac out of the blue for no apparent reason. **** happens @ 40 mph with pro cyclists and barriers inches from each other. As if anybody could analyze this from a video. Yeah, OK.

You mean Claudio Corti's comment about righting Bos' wrong by beating him up while sprinting?

It sounds like Corti want's Bos' career to end like Million Dollar Baby.

Which is worse this thing with Bos or what Graeme Brown did in Qatar a few years back. To me it looks like Bos is reacting to a crash and took someone down with him, Brown did a completely boneheaded move and took down several riders. The peloton seems to have forgiven Brown, my guess is Bos will be forgiven as well.

Yeah, but Graeme Brown came onto the road scene with a weath of experience from track racing and.....wait a minute.

Crucify all riders who have ridden on a velodrome!

if you are coming into a sprint you *never* take your hands off the bars anyone that does is a risk to the field. if you want to move someone then lean with your head or hands when in the drops. all-in though it was a crash and i don't think Bos did anything on purpose other than a little hands-on pushing. should he get a penalty ... mmm not sure. it it was a cat2/3 race ... well that guy would be marked but that is about it.
