Yuck Daddy! A British cyclist was splashed with human pee at the lastest Tour de France.
Via NYDailyNews reports:
This was not the kind of yellow jersey Mark Cavendish had in mind.
The British cyclist was doused with urine by a crazed spectator during the eleventh stage of the Tour de France Tuesday, according to the BBC.
Cavendish, who first thought it was water, made the stomach-turning discovery by tasting the liquid. The 28-year-old declined to comment on the incident but that didn’t stop his team manager, Patrick Lefevere, from expressing his disappointment.
“Probably some spectators were not very pleased with what happened yesterday and they yelled to him and then one other idiot threw urine at him,” Lefevere said in reference to Cavendish’s crash with Tom Veelers near the end of Tuesday’s 10th stage. “I regret this. I always felt that cycling fans were gentlemen, enthusiastic people.”
Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong didn’t see what all the fuss was about in expressing his opinion on Twitter. “why all the sudden shock and outrage. this has been happening for 100 years in some form or another,” he tweeted.
“It ruins the whole atmosphere for the spectators coming to the sport. One individual doing that just leaves a bit of a bad taste in the mouth,” Tour leader Chris Froome said. “And a bad taste in Mark’s mouth.”
People truly ain’t isht! How nasty.
