Does anyone have any idea why Moreau and Sastre got into their little fight? I almost fell out of my chair when I saw Moreau pop Sastre in the face.

According to the penalties, Moreau seemed to be at fault. 2 minute penalty for Moreau and 20 secs for Sastre... Both fined 400 francs...

I was impressed that OLN had the courage to show it.

Anyone see what lead up to the punch?

.... they looked like two little wimps trying to hit each other. I mean I know they were on bikes and all but, if you are going to throw little weak punches like that, why bother????

On another note has anyone heard more about the Armstrong/McEwen fued? Apparently McEwen told Armstrong that he was going to punch him in the face yesterday.
Maybe a bit of history...DrPete

Eddy Merckx got punched in the face by a fan many years ago while attempting to win tour #6, which he then lost... Maybe he was referring to that. McEwen and Armstrong have been pretty friendly as far as I know...

bounced from the race rather than having to abandone. Neither is having a decent Tour so why suffer any further?

in his tour diary, has been contually saying that Moroeu is a terrible bike handler in the pack & that he was glad Sastre stood up to him. See below.

If you read some of his other posts, he is refreshingly honest.
