Tossing and Tortured 'Till Dawn

"Bonking," "on the rivet," and "argy-bargy." Cycling has a lot of weird terms. One that I never really understood before was "quacking," which is what they call riders bumping into each other during agressive racing.

Cyclingnews finally explained the answer. Kwakken, they tell us, is Dutch for "bump," which happens all the time between the "hard men" of the spring classics.

So, when they say, quit your quacking, now you'll understand.
