Everything cycling, London.

Octave Lapize is noted for looking at some Tour officials on the climb of the Col du Tourmalet in the 1910 Tour de France and yelling, “Vous êtes des assassins! Oui, des assassins!”  The stage in question was 326 kilometers in length, featured 7 brutal  climbs, and was raced on unsealed roads with single-gear bicycles. Seems to me he was somewhat reserved in his comments.
He went on to win the Tour that year.
