i would like to think he did not take a sip but it was splashed in his face ..... I have seen spectators pass water bottles to the riders but surely a wise rider would not drink it since there is no way of knowing what is in it, like for example urine, posion, laxatitves, banned drugs etc...

I was rather more concerned that he actually recognised the taste of urine. Not that I'm implying anything [/libel]

Seriously though, it's a horrible thing to do, of course, but I wonder how many other riders might have experienced it and not made a fuss?

hmmmm although I don't ever recall doing it, I would be very surprised if there are many infants that have not tried to drink wee ( a lot of adults drink it after it's been rebadged as "lager" ) ..... ... C probably figured out what the yellow liquid was from the smell.
