Voeckler.

…nine riders out of ten in the peloton don’t like me.  One day on the 2006 Tour, Tom Boonen, who was reigning world champion, was near the front, slowing things a little.  At the moment I launched my attack, he hit me hard on the back. I stopped, he yelled at me and I said to him: ‘You can shout if you like, but don’t touch me.’ I was the small French guy he could hit because I’m thirty centimetres smaller than him.
