Alberto Contador Punches Heckler on Alpe d'Huez (Video)
Alberto Contador Hits Heckler
As with pitch invasions, running into the road while the Tour de France races by is a bit of a tradition. This means both fans and hecklers get in on the action. One heckler messed with the wrong guy (Alberto Contador) at the wrong time (while climbing Alpe d'Huez), and got punched in the face.
Thankfully for cycling fans, the incident was caught on video. Check it out below. Hey, if you were battling a 10% grade and some doofus tried to distract you, you'd resort to violence as well.
Poking is for Facebook, and not for Alpe d'Huez.
Alberto Contador sits in sixth place. Andy Schleck wears the Yellow Jersey.
