What does the phrase “Abdou’, Doing an Abdou'” refer to?
Djamolidin Abdoujaparov crashing while sprinting. (After 1991 final stage of the Tour). the footage was great back then wasn’t it, don’t believe it kids, this is a crap copy of some footage I’ve found on youtube, the crash begins at 1:20 if you want to skip forward… VHS was better than this.
Uses and References
There’s even a band named and a theme tune after him.
The band Abdoujaparov is named after a professional cyclist from Uzbekistan, who was famous for being extremely competitive in sprinting. In fact he was so determined that he would often knock other riders off their bikes with his unusual and erratic riding style. My favourite incident was when he run over a policeman who was trying to take photos at the Tour De France. He was banned from cycling two years ago for drugs offences.
