Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey 2009 Stage 8 Final Kilometers

Thanks Lance for pointing this out. Watch what Bos does at 3:43 in down on the lower left hand of the video. Throw him out of racing forever!

If you watch a little closer - the guy to the right of the maillot jaune starts to pinch him in to the left and Bos was already pretty much into the barriers. I think he put his hand out just as a defensive manuever even though he was probably destined to go asphalt beaver anyway. It definitely looks at first glance like Bos dragged the yellow jersey guy down but doing so would make absolute zero sense.

In general - that race was totally effed. way too many crashes. Those guys are supposed to be pro's.

It looks pretty clear to ME that it was a forceful push. Agree-kick that F'r out!

i've watched it twice and couldn't see what all the fuss was about until i turned up the volume.. the commentator jumped the gun on calling the crash.. and got you all fired up. but what a clusterfuck

I don't know. The leader is coming over on Bos and the door is getting shut. It appears to me that Bos simply reaches over and pull him by the jersey into the barriers. It would have been one thing to give him an elbow or a shove, but that is not what is going on there. He gave him the jersey version of the Madison Sling. It looked pretty rageful. I didn't even watch it the first time with volume. I was at work and we ain't got no speakers ya hear.
