Intentional take down?

Two words-

Criminal charges.

Never mind the USAC the guy assaulted him, caused bodily harm, recklessly endangered about 50 other guys, and he did it on a public road, on camera.

I don't know whether you can conclude much from the footage or the pic above (remember what the Bos footage looked like originally). Reports were that Bahati was being extremely aggressive to knock Keough off the UHC train and get the wheel. He's trying that by leaning hard on him and doing a lot of shoulder work. Keough may just be trying to hold his position, which would require leaning into Bahati. If Bahati lets up, Keough could have swerved as a result...

It looks very conclusive in motion to me. Keough swerves right across his front wheel, turning a good 10ft farther inside off the turn then everyone else and barely misses a pedal stroke getting back on the of his train.

Both need to be suspended. Although Bahati gets the pansy award for throwing sunglasses at him. That's all he could come up with after the guy tries to plow him over?

You are right. If Bahati was a real man he would be packing heat and put some lead in Keough. :rolleyes:

Those posters advocating violence slay me. Don't you get it - escalation is what led to the chopping and throwing sunglasses into the peloton.

They are both chumps. Does it really matter who is the bigger chump?

Ok, Hypersensitive Harry. I was simply poking fun of Bahati for throwing sunglasses after someone tried to run him down. It's called contrast. I suggest you ease up and consider the plethora of interpretative avenues before you conclude that someone 'advocates violence.' It's laughable that you twist my message to the point of suggesting that I meant that Bahati should've shot the guy. That's ridiculous. If I wanted to advocate violence, I would say it outright. And you wouldn't need to manipulate what I said in order to fit your self-indulgent agenda.

Sorry you didn't get a ride in today.

You used contrast, I used hyperbole.

Before jumping to conclusions, you might want to reread my post. I responded to your contrast statement with hyperbole and then, with a new thought, I shared my opinion on individuals that feel that violence would be the best way of addressing this issue between the riders.

If you feel that my statement applies to you, then only you would know.

Lastly, I don't think that I'm smart enough to have an agenda, let alone a self-indulgent one. But, I'm open to suggestions.

Your statement about individuals advocating violence sits just below your quotation of my post. So, I believed that your statement applied to me. Why else would you quote me and subsequently disagree with what you presumed I meant? You're smart enough to have an agenda! Please don't take any of this as a personal attack. It has to do with interpretation. And I apologize if my first response to you was off-putting, as I imagine it was. I did get in a ride yesterday! Going today too, but I need new tires first.

^You dudes need to take a deep breath and just calm down. It's an cycling internet forum; it really doesn't mean much of anything.

Reading too much into a posting and getting into a virtual fight isn't worth your breath (fingers!) or time.

And besides, it is Friday morning where I am and that means three solid days of riding are here! Just focus on having a sweet as weekend.

And we are done.
