Get ready to point and laugh!  Especially, if you're like me, and have never made a mistake.

Spanish cyclist Eduard Prades found out the hard way that there is no celebrating second place in competitive cycling.  He thought he had won the opening stage of the Tour of Hellas, he did not.  Not only did he not, it wasn't even close.

Prades started to celebrate as he crossed the finish line ahead of the group he was leading and his seat fell off his bike sending him to the ground hard.

Karma is a bitch and cycling is a big fan of karma.  There's nothing quite like making fun of other people's failures.
