Luka Pibernik's exploits during stage five of the Giro d'Italia on Wednesday will be remembered for a long time — but perhaps for all the wrong reasons.
The Slovenian Bahrain-Merida rider was preparing to enter the final lap of the circuit but it appeared he forgot to read the cycling rulebook.
Pibernik thought he had already entered the last lap and believing he was about to take the stage victory having had a comfortable lead over his rivals, he raised his arms in celebration when he crossed the line.
It seems the 23-year-old didn't hear the bell and unfortunately he was made to look a bit silly as his rivals closed down the gap with around 5km of the stage remaining.
The unlucky rider will want to put his howler behind him after finishing in 148th spot, 20 seconds adrift of stage winner Fernando Gaviria following his mistake.
Gaviria snatched his second win on this year's Giro d'Italia when he sprinted to victory in impressive fashion in Wednesday's fifth stage.
The Colombian rider of the Quick Step-Floors team, who had already prevailed on stage three, easily beat Italian Jakub Mareczko (Wilier Triestina-Selle Italia) and Ireland's Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe) at the end of a 159-km route from Pessara to Messina, the home town of defending champion Vincenzo Nibali.
Gaviria will wear the points classification's cyclamen jersey on Thursday as his team mate, Luxembourg's Bob Jungels, retained the overall leader's maglia rosa.
Thursday's sixth stage takes the peloton over 217km from Reggio Calabria to Terme Luigiane.
A protest by a group calling themselves “All Cops Are Bastards” was the site of some seriously sweet justice.
During the protest in Denver, the group was trying to stop traffic to protest … well, cops, we suppose.
When one car tried to dodge the protesters, one of them jumped out in front of the car and was tapped by the bumper.
The cameraman – one of the protesters – freaked out on the driver and ordered him to stay put while … well, while they called the police. The driver complied, pulled over and got out of the car.
Within seconds, the police arrived and the cameraman began telling the driver how lucky he was that the police showed up so quickly – we suppose because they would have physically assaulted him.
But in an awesome twist, the police arrested the man who was hit by the car for blocking traffic. The camera is dumbfounded. “What the f**k?” he keeps repeating.
Later, the cameraman berates the police, asking them why they’re not arresting the driver, who they eventually let go.
The crowd screamed at the police, waved banners and flags and berated the police.
Toward the end of the film, the cameraman was apparently arrested. “Hey bro with the mask,” one officer said, pointing at the cameraman. “We’re coming for you.” It is illegal to engage in demonstrations or protests with a mask on in many areas.
And they arrested the masked moron, and that was the end of the broadcast.
We have made it over 100 days into Donald Trump’s run as the president. At times, it still doesn’t seem real. But it is what happened and it seems like people from both sides are still having a hard time coming together.
Take this guy for example. He is still going on with the whole “not my prez” lines that people have been saying since he WON the election. Which by definition made him everyone’s President.
He took it another step further by printing off his own T-shirt with a knockoff Nike logo and the phrase “F*CK TRUMP” on it.
The guys in the streets didn’t take to kindly to the shirt and took matters into their own hands.
The Israel Prison Service released a video which shows Marwan Barghouti, the high-profile Palestinian prisoner leading a hunger strike, secretly eating in the bathroom of his cell.
The hunger strike launched three weeks ago with a Barghouti op-ed in the New York Times. The hundreds of Palestinian hunger strikers are calling for more favorable prison conditions. Barghouti is serving multiple life sentences for the murder of five Jewish Israelis.
The video released on Sunday shows Barghouti eating in his bathroom twice, on April 27 and May 5.
“As I said from the very beginning, this hunger strike was never about the conditions of the convicted terrorists, which meet international standards. It is about advancing Marwan Barghouti’s political ambitions,” Minister of Public Security Gilad Erdan said in a statement following the release of the video.
“He lied to the Palestinian public when he claimed to be striking,” Erdan also said.
Some 850 Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails are still taking part in the strike.
A video showing a woman failing to chuck a rubbish bag in the bin has left the internet in stitches although on close inspection the clip appears to be a set up.
The short clip, posted online by Twitter user and University of Nottingham student Emily Holt on Monday, shows Emily's flatmate Natalie Smith taking a bag of rubbish to a bin outside wearing just a dressing gown.
However in a monstrous faux pas on route to the bin Natalie drags the bag along the asphalt ground ripping a hole in the thin transparent bag.
As she attempts to lob the waste over her should into the open rubbish bin the bag's contents fly out of the hole and spray across the floor with none reaching its desired destination.
The video, which had the caption 'my flatmate just peaked,' has gone viral on Twitter receiving over 224,000 likes and just under 100,000 retweets.
A Partick Thistle steward has gone viral for her lacklustre attempt to stop Rangers fans invading the pitch on Sunday afternoon.
Joe Garner's 94th-minute winner sparked wild scenes at Firhill, with a number of fans spilling out of the stand and onto the turf to celebrate.
And despite being heavily outnumbered, the helpless steward was mocked by some Twitter users after doing little to stop fans joining their heroes on the pitch.
A woman was arrested after attempting to smuggle a large amount of heroin from Mexico into the United States Tuesday. The 47-year-old Arizona woman caught the border patrol officers' attention when she tried to enter the U.S. at a southern Arizona border crossing. She had taped almost three pounds of heroin to her buttocks. The heroin was wrapped in packages and stuffed into the back of the woman's jeans. The drugs had a value of $45,000.
Apparently it was fairytale our at the White House today as Palestinian president Abbas spewed some of the dumbest statements you've ever heard about the peace process with Israel and how the Palestinian government is actually raising their youth to be peaceful.
I believe the video clips of Palestinian children afterwards prove that is nothing more than a lie.
A historically black college plans to award Trayvon Martin a posthumous degree later in May, the school announced Wednesday.
Florida Memorial University will present a bachelor’s of aeronautical science May 13 to Martin’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin.
Trayvon Martin died in 2012 after neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman shot him during an altercation.
The award serves to honor Martin’s memory and pay homage to the work his parents do for social justice, the school said.
“The University will confer upon TRAYVON MARTIN a posthumous degree in Aeronautical Science with a concentration in Flight Education, in honor of the steps he took during his young life toward becoming a pilot,” the school’s statement read.
Martin wanted to become a pilot or learn how to fly planes, the Tampa Bay Times reported earlier.
“As we approach 50 years in Miami Gardens, this commencement holds a special place in all of our hearts…Of special significance is awarding posthumously the Bachelor of Science Degree in Aviation to Trayvon Martin,” Dr. Roslyn Clark Artis, president of Florida Memorial University, said in a statement.
This man in a truck pulling a trailer behind him wasn't about to stop for a bunch of Libtard protesters who honestly believed they could push a truck with their hands and stop it from moving.
It truly doesn't get any more idiotic than a small group of protesters believing they can hold up a truck that's meant to pull thousands of pounds. Yet another example of the stupidity of the protesters these leftist groups appeal to.
A hapless driver was caught on dashcam running down a steep hill after his car - that rolled backwards through traffic and smashed into a tree. The silver car ended up half way up a tree after miraculously avoiding two lanes of stop-start traffic as it rolled at speed down the steep road. The driverless motor, which was being chased by a man and a woman, thought to be the driver and a passenger, clipped the sloping edge of a crash barrier which launched it high into the tree. Driver Paul Morris-Hill captured the hilarious accident on his dashcam, on the steep Detling Hill near Canterbury, Kent, on Wednesday evening.
After the 17 viral airplane videos that have come out in the last few weeks it really doesn’t surprise me that some guy is going out of his way to try and make another. He thought throwing his phone in this lady’s face while she is working hard would get him the viral cred he always dreamt about!
He posted it on YouTube with the caption: Family traveling with young kids humiliated by several rude and sarcastic Delta employees. Delta is based in ATL. One would think the QC at their hub would be much better. This is what happens when there is a lack of choices at an airport.
After posting it he got shredded into pieces in the comment section. He deleted the post but luckily the internet deletes nothing!
