Alberto Contador Punches a Heckling Fan at Tour de France (Video)

If I told you I was a big fan of the Tour de France, I would be lying.  That being said, I do follow the highlights and pay attention to some of the tense moments.  Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong, Tour de France buffs, but this year’s Tour seems like one of the craziest in history.  We have already seen one racer get tangled up in a barbed wire fence after a car ran a few cyclists off the road a little over a week ago.  Now, the fans are getting in on the nuttiness.  Check out the video of Alberto Contador punching a fan, courtesy of Deadspin:

In case the joke flew over your head, the fan Contador punched was dressed as a doctor carrying a blood bag.  That, of course, is a reference to the three-time Tour champion giving a positive drug test last year.  Heckling is one thing.  Running alongside a cyclist during a race and making fun of them to their face is another.  Guy got what he deserved.

    Ah, come on! It’s not like folks didn’t dress up as syringes when Lance was still riding. I think it’s pretty funny. Besides, it clearly exhibits Alberto’s lack of class when he isn’t winning. Maybe he needs to look up Charlie Sheen on how to appear awesome when things turn south?
