back to the non-contentious side of the kittel-bike-throwing incident. looks like the precipitating event was his bars breaking!

granted i'm putting out a tiny fraction of kittel's power, it's still validation for me to stick with alloy bars/stems!!!!

"(kittel)...was left dumped on the ground with two kilometres to go after his handlebars broke apparently after hitting a hole in the road."

regarding the aforementioned throwing, kittel has a very non-cav attitude toward the aftermath. from twitter:
