Who threw their bottle?

edited April 2010 in Pro race
I remember reading once about a rider who felt hard done by in a sprint, sat up, and lobbed his bottle at another rider, a cracking shot, hitting him on the head. He was someone quite famous but I can't remember who or what race.

Anyone know what i'm talking about?

    Magic, thank you.

    Quality bottle (and teddy) throwing by both of them.

    Anyone notice the rider getting hit on the head by an empty thrown from a switchback above, during a mountain stage of last year's Giro?

    Yup - he won a couple of stages at the Rás last year. He's even older than the Shack coffin-dodgers.

    No bottle throwing but there were fisticuffs in the sprint (and after) at the Tour of Turkey yesterday.

    That's what got me thinking about the bottle thing.

    I think the XG rider got the wrong Colnago rider at first didn't he?

    Handbags (musettes?) at 20 paces.

    It's a little like wrestling a gorilla. You don't quit when you're tired. You quit when the gorilla is tired.

    I saw one a couple of years ago before I got into all this where two riders were sprinting against each other and one headbutted the other and took him down, who was that?
