Team Sky Giro TTT Training

Not overly exciting, but I thought it was interesting to see the pros also get disrespected while out on their rides, even in bike-friendly Europe. Skip ahead to roughly 3:20 to see Wiggins get pegged by a water bottle thrown from a passing car.

Stolen from Michael Barry's blog.


  1. It was a plastic bottle though. Here in less cycling friendly world it seems to be beer bottles or paintball guns ;-) didn't hit though so I guess it doesn't count...

  2. A can or paint pellet wouldn't be good, but a full plastic bottle can do damage too...just ask Lars who had a close call 2 litre road rocket in Headingly.

  3. Truckers here like to throw their piss bottles. So nice.
