Man, if there was evidence that cyclists are not really 'bout that life, this incredibly weak slapfest between Ivan Rovny and Gianluca Brambilla during the 16th stage of the Vuelta a España is it. Are they swatting at flies or trying to hit each other?

I guess if their ultimate goal was to stay on their bikes and in the race, they succeeded, but not like that was going to matter. They were both booted from the tournament before the stage ended. If you're going to get kicked out anyway, might as well connect a couple solid shots.
