Italian cyclist Elia Rigotto was disqualified from the the Tour Down Under on Friday for headbutting Australia’s Mathew Hayman, causing him to fall and break his left collarbone. On the fourth stage of the tour in Australia, it appeared that Rigotto was leading the race with less than a 1,000 yards to go and his headbutt allowed those behind him to move up and win the stage. Despite the obvious headbutt, Rigotto was fined for just about $180, and Hayman accepted his apology that it was an accident. Of course, I had to find the video for it. Sorry, it only gets good after 3 minutes in.
