Do you expect someone to remove the cork with the cage still installed somehow?

I'm guessing Russian Bear was thinking that the cage is removed ahead of time and riders, who obviously don't know how to operate a bottle you don't squeeze, were just shaking the bubbly slightly and boom headshot. Opposed to just aiming directly at their face as they remove the cage and cork.

Sucks for the rider, lol though that they don't know how to open a bottle of bubbly.

van der Pool nearly did the exact same thing a few days ago and he's had plenty of practice.

I think it has more to do with giving giant novelty bottles to people with famously low upper body strength who just rode a bike as fast as they could for five hours.

Good on MVdP, I hope Girmay is able to start tomorrow but last I saw it sounded unlikely :(

Yep, before i watched the video i thought he bent over and it hit before he was expecting because they took it off.

What rex said and also as a completely irrelevant aside....

If poppin' bottles is your job (heyoo food service), you are taught to leave the cage on with one "twist" remaining in the wire, put a towel over the cork and twist the bottle while holding the cork still to prevent accidents. Obviously a little different on the podium. Hope he can start and doesn't have any long term issues like diplopia that can gently caress up his future.
