    just watching todays highlights, and thought it was a bit harsh that a fallen racer went over to the dogs owner that caused the accident and confronted him in an angry manner when the dog's owners had a child with them. Luckily his team members pulled him away before he had a chance to get stuck in.

    Bizarre logic.

    Doesn't matter that a few cyclists could have ended up with broken bones, or worse, just as long as litttle Pierre doesn't hear some naughty words!

    I'd be barking mad if a dog brought me off.

    What kind of moron takes a dog along to watch a bike race then doesn't keep it under control? The idiot owner should have been publically flogged.

    I'm with the others - you're kidding, right? What kind of an idiot takes a dog not under control to a bike race? A good lesson for the child: even your parents can be idiots!

    Are you suggesting he should have taken him down a dark alley and kicked seven shades out of him?

    well it'd be better than doing it infront of his fambo, if he could have found a dark alley in that area of course lol

    I know. Wouldn't want the little wifey being exposed to anything like that.

    The humiliation of being seen on TV to be the day's number one muppet in France will be enough, it will stay with the man for the rest of his life.

    Big dog. I wouldn't have fancied the team car's chances!

    Another dog incident eh. Noodley never did get back on how many dog incidents there have been in the tdf.
