Tour of Turkey Crash

There isn't much I can say that Ken Conley didn't already say on his blog, Spare Cycles. Barloworld rider, Daryl Impey was seriously injured during the tour of Turkey when he had "contact" (ah-hem) with Rabbobank rider, Theo Bos.
Here is a video clip from the Tour of Turkey. If you don't want to watch it all, please fast forward to 3:25 to watch the drama.



Daryl Impey won the Tour of Turkey despite what appears to be a deliberate takedown. He comments on the incident on his website. According to Bike World News,"He suffered a broken hip, a neck injury and facial trauma, lost several teeth and had a deep cut in his lip as well. Impey was awarded the victory but obviously could not attend the awards celebration".

OMG. He should be banned from cycling for life and prosecuted for assault.
