Someone needs to tell these pro cyclists that they are not members of the Hells Angels. During Friday’s heated stage 6 of the 2010 Tour de France, Carlos Barredo found himself in the midst of a little scuffle with rival Rui Costa. The video tape shows Barredo, identified as the gentleman in the Quickstep uniform wielding a bicycle wheel over his head, literally fights Costa to the ground before the two riders were separated.
I’m honestly not sure how two professional cyclists get to the point in their minds where they say, “lets drop the bikes and do this.” The Tour slapped each cyclists with a fine, and that’s exactly what needed to happen. While there is no place for fighting in professional cycling (I can’t believe I have the opportunity to actually say that), I might suggest that the WWE take a page out of Barredo’s book and integrate a bike wheel into their next pay-per-view event.
