    thats true, he didn't ride it out. It's in one of the movies, the riders he is gapping are actually racing the Tour de France

    i have the preview to that video and it shows him jumping it. i thought he rode it out, sure looked like it unless he fell later. did he get in trouble with the cops?

    ya it does say watson. they got there three weeks early to scope out a good enough area. they had to have a person near the lander to move unssuspecting fans out of the way. he jumped over the second group of riders, not a the head of the pack with Lance. he said he wanted to be curteous to the leaders. The roadies didn't even glance up to see what the f*** just happened

    this is sooooo old and i think its photoshopped cuz watson looks much larger than in the real version and the road has his name on it

    the road has his name on it in the video too if you're using that as evidence for photoshopping.

    Yeah, I saw that in NWD too. Awesome shot. That guy has balls too, doing the gap is one thing, but gapping the TDF is another. Kudos to Watson, eh?

    He didn't land it and broke his collar bone I believe. I read about it on the Kona website (Guess he was riding a Kona)

    ive seen the stage he did it ten thousand times on the actual Tour coverage. (its on replay at work...god i hate road bikes) and theres nothing on it. its because he jumped a pretty late pack of riders and the coverage is jsut about lance and sh!t. he also didnt get in any sort of trouble for it. the videos of the cops running down to him i think were just for concern if he was alright. thats just what ive read about it.
