People suck

Twenty cyclists, including one Olympic hopeful, hurt after conflict with irate driver in Australia.

Her father, 1984 Olympic gold medalist Kevin Nichols, said the cyclists were traveling at about 60 kilometres (37 miles) per hour when the car began swerving into the pack.

"He sped ahead and pulled in front of the pack. I though, 'Uh oh' and began warning riders around me to slow down," he told The Daily Telegraph.

"Then suddenly he slammed the brakes on and it was too late for anyone to get out of the way."
