    Stupid photographer. This sport needs better crowd control. It is an outrage that a professional can spend the better part of a year preparing for an event and have it scuttled like this. There are enough inherent dangers in cycling without fans pushing their way into an oncoming sprint. I hope the idiot got a nice shot out of it at least.

    Can you imagine the outcry if someone ran onto the court at Wimbledon and tripped Rafael Nadal over trying to get a better shot of him? Surely these things are avoidable

    Loren Rowney, and now Contador. Maybe double barriers for the final 500 meters when there’s a flat finish, with high likelihood of a fast bunch sprint.

      This was recommended a couple of years ago after a couple of similar incidents.

    I cannot see how Alberto will be competitive with this injury.Dreadful thing to happen and the Giro was shaping up so well.

      it’s just a dislocated shoulder. they hurt like hell, until they’re put back in. it depends then on what degree of ligament etc. damage is done. mine used to half-hang out of the socket until I had surgery, but there’s no reason why he can’t ride I reckon. i’d be just as worried about the leg/knee injury.
