During a heated discussion, a Katusha rider can be seen taking a swing for a Direct Energie rider on stage two of the Three Days of De Panne.

The two appear to almost collide before having words. The rider in red then swings his left arm out but doesn't make contact with his rival, although we're sure the race commissaires will have something to say about the incident.

Time for 12 speed on road bikes?
