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.

Larry :
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?

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.

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).
