Crazy finishing sprint crash from Tour of Turkey

This might be the craziest finishing sprint crash I’ve ever seen. Look at 3:45 in the video above – Theo Bos of Rabobank literally grabs Barloworld’s Daryl Impey (the yellow jersey wearer of the tour at the time) and throws him into the barrier. Bos claimed that he was just trying to prevent Impey from crossing his line, but that sure looks like a “grab-and-throw” to me. Impey still won the tour, but has a fracture of the third disk of his lumbar vertebra, a micro-fracture of his neck, a facial trauma, a few broken teeth and a deep cut in his lips – ouch!
