Here’s cyclist Lars Boom celebrating his victory on stage five of the Binckback Tour with an emphatic “up yours”:


Fuck yeah, dude. The bras d’honneur. Boom was reportedly fined 1,000 Swiss Francs for the gesture, which was apparently an expression of joy and not bloodthirst:

“It indeed brings a lot of joy,” said Boom. “The spring classics didn’t go as well as expected. Afterwards, I was close to the Dutch title. I worked hard to reach this level, and it’s great that I could achieve this. I always want to win. Therefore, it’s beautiful I can end a difficult period with many doubts in this way. Finally, I have been able to deliver my team a win and that’s great.”
