That was certainly one to remember. I didn't see it because I was on the way to the start, but was close enough to hear the rather excited commentary.
Yeah I remember (well at least I think I do) watching that happen. I always wondered why if big bad bob was so big and bad that he didn't just take off the dacks and let it bob.
if you read the article carefully, apparently he wasn't losing his pants, rather loosing them. probably some tactic Jules was emulating at WOC 2007?
Haha yeah I noticed that too!
Great story! I looked it up and the definition of the phrase 'salt in a sore wound' is to punch the wrong last control in a chasing start only to find your pants have fallen down.
It's amazing how many times thats come up really.
I'll remind Bob of this next time he tells me I've done a shit job at a major meet (which I anticipate shouldn't take too long).
