Sounds weird , I'd like to see the video of , Interesting making it to ESPN http://sports.espn.go.com/oly/cycling/news/story?id=3213900 DELAIDE, Australia -- Italian cyclist Elia Rigotto was disqualified from the Tour Down Under on Friday for causing an accident that left Australia's Mathew Hayman with a broken collarbone. Race officials accused Rigotto of "headbutting" Hayman in a frantic sprint less than 1,000 yards from the finish line. He was disqualified from the race and fined 200 Swiss francs (about $180), although he insisted it was an accident and Hayman accepted his apology. "It was a severe headbutt, a very serious incident," Tour Down Under chief commissioner Michael Robb told Australian media. "It was one of the worst headbutts I've seen in a very long time." Race physician Peter Barnes later announced that Hayman had undergone surgery to repair his fractured left collarbone. Surgeons inserted a plate and screws for stabilization, which would help speed his return to racing. Hayman is expected to be back on his bike within a week. Erik Dekker, manager of Hayman's team, said Hayman also thought the crash was an accident and held no grudges against Rigotto. "He [Rigotto] said he had his head down and looked up and his head went into Mat's elbow, he didn't mean it," Dekker said. "He asked, 'Please let him know, I didn't mean to do it.' " The crash was just one of several accidents on Friday's fourth stage of the tour. The stage was won by Germany's Andre Greipel; Australia's Mark Renshaw retained the overall lead.
