He was unhappy with something his mechanic did or did not do to his bike..
It's even funnier when we remember how fussy Mercx was. Tape measure pedantry at 6:09. Tape measure is not good enough - at 16min:


Of course, Eddy would have punched the guy with the camera.

I think he apologized because he got caught. He must be a delight in private..

Eh, maybe.

I can also see it working the other way: he acts out because he is overwhelmed with external stressors, which would be much more manageable in private - i.e. a super nice guy one on one.
Yeah..I dunno..that's just an excuse I think for people with wealth, power and privilege. If I did this at work I'd be fired on the spot. I just ain't worth keeping around if I start being belligerent. No wealth, power or privilege for me! :ogbiggrin:

Same -- well, I'd have to fire myself.....

I'm giving him a pass on that. Unbelievable stress going for the record, over 100 requests per day for press interviews, yadda yadda, he finally snapped at a very unfortunate moment.

A friend said Cav was super-gracious about not breaking the record, but I missed that. In fact, the Tour became such a foregone conclusion, I lost interest.

Hoping for a more tightly-contested Giro!
