It is from the post Paris-Roubaix pit cleaning pics. It he using such a high pressure stream of water that it is actually moving the rear derailleur to the inside of the wheel, or is it a victim of a crash and a very badly bent rear derailleur?:eek:

The prima donna mechanics probably refuse to work on a dirty bike, so they are hosing it down before it gets repaired. Or, maybe that's the only bike available when the photographer came around.

Despite all that, the carbon derailleur parallelogram bit survived and I see no damaged spokes.

Isn't that frame toasted, since the Scott doesn't have a replaceable derailleur hanger?
If it is, they are probably just cleaning it up to make it easier to strip the parts off before the trip to the dumpster. Seriously, a sponsored team can probably ship the frame back and have the dropout replaced. Dropout, epoxy, good to go.

Scott's rear dropout does not have a replaceable derailleur hanger and, according to Scott, it is not repairable. When such things happen, according to those who have had such things happen, Scott simply ships out a new frame.
