Someone finally posted the video of Frenchman Sandy Casar hitting a dog during the 2007 Tour de France. Casar and his breakaway companions were flying down the road at 30 miles per hour when the dog wandered into their path. Casar and another rider went down hard. Casar remounted his bike, caught the other two riders, and went on to win the stage. It was a magnificent piece of riding. The dog, so far as I know, survived the crash, perhaps because he or she was struck in the neck rather than the torso. Watch the video and you’ll see what I mean.
