anyone catch the clip of the Gerolsteiner rider doing his impersonation of the highway crash test today? It was almost like the frame had a built-in crumple zone the way it imploded on impact.

I thought they put "cones" around objects like that?

That post was right in the middle of the exit of the turnabout. VERY dangerous. They could have at least placed a traffic cone a meter or two before it.

Did you see the front wheel looked ok after hitting the curb! :eek:

I am suprised he walked away. I guess he kinda landed on his feet afer the flip that broke his fall.

WOW! I'm glad he's not more badly hurt. Gerolsteiner has had bad luck with stuff like that this year. Versus had a couple of clips of Gero. guys breaking their bikes in the spring classics too. No Quick Step guys, just Gerolsteiner.

Specialized Carbon Fiber bike EXPLODES at the TdF......Headlines! I am waiting for the posts from the anti-CF crowd, extolling the virtues of steel, titanium, etc. Remakable crash, lucky cyclist. that signpost was about crotch level. Hate to think of the damage it could have caused.
