Heard over the internet broadcast that Christophe Moreau punched somebody in the face in today's race. Can anyone confirm/deny? What was up with that?

A little checking into the boards, and fighting is one way to make the otherwise "forgone conclusion" TdF more exciting. Look for it in next year's tour. If you get caught you have to go to the penalty box, but if you get the guy with a good enough hit, maybe he won't be able to continue! Wow... what a concept! Maybe then everyone in the US will watch. We might even see a Rollerball type movie! Next thing you know we'll see 6'5", 250 lbs. riders on the USPS team to guard LA.
LOL! That was my take exactly. Call it 'Cyclockey'...spyderman

or 'Tour de Force'.

Although, the penalty in Hockey is 5 mins for fighting, Moreau only got two mins... Not a high price to pay if you really want to go off on someone.

They showed the altercation on OLN. I was watching what I could before work and saw most of it. Didn't see what actually started it but there was at least one feable punch thrown by one of them (not sure if it was Moreau though), some jersey tugging and pushing. OLN should definitely have this in their re-broadcast.
Looked like Mr. Burns throwing punches.RoyGBiv
