Well, actually he's a class act with a fun streak. Here he is making a face at his wife before Stage 1. Nice taste!

why the class act stomped through the crowd and punched anyone within fist distance last year after a stage win. Everything I've seen of him suggests he is indeed a great dude except that one VERY notable exception. What was the deal with that?
I didn't know about this forum last year so it probably got discussed to death at the time.

That I would have remembered. There was in incident at the Worlds where Robbie McEwan and Eric Zabel were shouldering for position, but no punches were thrown. There was a fight (slap fest) between Bobby Julich and (I believe) an Italian a few years back.

You missed it then Atom..it was during last year's tour. Zabel won a stage, and when he got off his bike he was basically shoving people out of the way to get off the course. Most people explained his behavior as adrenaline rush from the sprint.

Dude makes a funny face at his wife, and he is a "nut?" Man, you must lead a boring life!
