Terpstra got disqualified and lost his 7th place overall. Smart.

Terpstra's teammates work for him the whole race and then he does something like this to get kicked out.

apparently, this is not new territory for terpstra. he is not well liked in the peloton.

Which one is Terpstra? The one in black? Looks like he started it, but the clip can be misleading.

Grown men in their underwear elbowing each other. Silliest thing you'll see all week.

wynants looks like a reasonably large dude.

terpstra has to be down at least 20 lbs on him, probably more?

he almost bounced into the spectators when he got shooed away by wynants.

that was some goofy stuff regardless. not the smartest, esp. at the front.

I don't mind this sorta stuff (so long as it doesnt lead to a dumb crash), you're supposed to have enemies/rivals out there - you can be friends during the off season

I accidentally smashed my elbow into the refrigerator today and I nearly fell over from the pain. I can imagine using my elbow to ht someone in the face.
