I was chatting to my buddies in Cape Town and there's a massive search taking place to find a group of cyclists that went totally mental with road rage, check out the video...theres obviously two sides to every story but this behaviour is totally unacceptable.

    I used to just ride my bike to work but now I find myself going out looking for bigger and bigger hills.

    Its not clever but when the adrenaline kicks in we all get the hump. I had a fight to ight when some arse nearly took me out on my scooter at 60mph on way home from work. Unlike me but i ended up kicking side of his van in as i was so annoyed so very nearly killed me and without seeing what happened before hand its hard to judge. If he had ridden over and killed two riders and driven off then we wohld see it from a different angle, but you need to see what happened before this to judge it.

    According to the text under the video:
    Further ahead was a stationary vehicle that was double parked but it went unnoticed by the leader of the group who was looking back and communicating to the rest of the team. The group were moving swiftly and only at the last second when the leader again faced forwards, did he see the vehicle…. Just in the nick of time. He had to swerve to avoid the vehicle and this obviously upset him. He stopped his bicycle abruptly and flew into a violent rage.
    It goes on to say the occupants of the van were clearing rubbish after an event. We still don't know for certain, but that would seem to imply a complete over reaction.

    No. It doesn't matter what the provocation. There is no excuse for using violence against people, animals or, in most cases other peoples property, except in some circumstances for self defence. Just to be clear, respondong violently to something which has already occured is not self defence, it's revenge or just plain thuggery.

    The guy is a thug, as said, on his own he would have done nothing, pretty much shows the racial nature that is still SA.
    didn't look where is was going, almost causes an accident but its the black guys fault :roll:

    Sorry, you'll have to explain that. I know what you're trying to imply but I just don't see why.
    Do you disagree with what I said? Then try and use your words to tell me why.

    btw... who's put me on a pedestal? Did you mean horse? :roll:

    Its south africa ! 16000 MURDERS last year ! A friend of mine is south african and he just returned from joberg,He was telling me about a road rage incident in which a motorcyclist shot dead a motorist !

    I think we are very lucky in this country ! Violence is obliviously the answer in south africa for a percentage of the population. :roll:

    Given the crime rates and gun ownership figures for SA the riders should count themselves lucky they weren't on the receiving end of an armed response.
