Is this some phrase I'm not familiar with ("I was spat") or did somebody actually spit at you?!

cycling phrase - maybe Aussie. Means to get shunted off the back of the pack into the wind! "Dropped" is a kinder synonym.

I like it! I wonder if there are any orienteering phrases specific to Australia or is the sport too niche to allow such diversity. Maybe we can coin some.
