I saw someone (I forgot who; I think it was a re-tweet) post the most appropriate sentiment I can imagine on twitter, “If Peyton Manning crashed into a barb wire fence, came back, and finished the game, you’d never hear the end of it.” I agree. On stage 9 of this year’s TdF, Johnny Hoogerland got crashed into a barb wire fence by a French media vehicle. He then remounted his bike. And finished the stage. The picture says it all.
