Wenatchee's Tyler Farrar In Confrontation After 3rd Crash At Tour de France

SAINT-QUENTIN, France (AP) - U.S. sprinter Tyler Farrar finished the fifth stage of the Tour de France bloodied and angry, and had to be pulled away from the rider he blamed for causing his third crash in as many days.

Before stunned onlookers, Farrar dropped his bicycle and stormed into the Argos-Shimano team bus of rival sprinter Tom Veelers, shouting "you don't do that to someone."

Argos Shimano riders pushed Farrar off their bus while staff from the American's Garmin-Sharp team ran to pull him back inside their own bus, which was parked nearby.

Neither Farrar nor Garmin-Sharp manager Jonathan Vaughters would comment on the rider's outburst. Roy Curvers, a Dutch rider from Argos-Shimano, said Farrar came looking for Veelers.
