Chris Bischoff has been at the receiving end of countless rider protests over the years and for that we feel extremely sorry for him. Bisch himself is one of the best things in wake's history, but the trend of riders being salty that they didn't win that weekend will never go away. Everyone at the top level is very competitive, as they should be. Losing gracefully was something that seemed to be rare at times when riders figured, "I didn't get the result that I wanted? I'm filing a protest." The tour judges have no reason to judge anyone with bias and if they did, they would lose their spot. They also have no problem discussing with riders why they made the decision they did. Firing off an emotional voice-raising protest on the other hand gives off the vibe of a sore loser more than anything else.
