Can't work this out, did something break, or did his foot just come out and he had a tantrum?

His chain snapped. I'd hate to see the tantrum if that had happened to Cavendish - a real primadonna IMO :roll:

Surely it would have taken 45 seconds to remove the link, get on with the race and not be a primo git about it?

Can't see you tube stuff at work.

Is this the footage of well known (but never tested positive) drug cheat David Millar throwing his bike away after the chain snapped?

Always good to have a tantrum though - must have been really pumped up to snap the chain :wink: ! Still a primo git though. Hope someone knicked the bike
