Here is an old joke by legendary comedian George Carlin about the only reason he watches auto racing. "I'm waiting for some accidents, man. I want to see some cars on fire!"
The same could be said about cycling, although you will not find any fires burning when bikes collide with each other...
During high-profile bike races like the Tour de France, there are often official cars driving fairly close to the riders, raising the specter of an accident.
But the collision that took place during the Tour Monday, between a car carrying members of a French television crew and riders Juan Antonio Flecha and Johnny Hoogerland, didn't quite look like an accident.
