Still pic from recent cavendish crash………impressive……….
Cavendish leaned on another rider and they both went down
I'm still of the opinion Heinrich Haussler had his head down not looking what was going off and Cav had his head up going for the line, pretty 50/50 IMO……..it was Hein's wheel that went over Cav's not the other way round. I'm not a massive Cav fan but i think putting the "sole" blame on our fellow brit is pretty sh1t! I think this is purely down to his aggresive reputation that the rest have simply ganged up on an easy victim and made Cav the villain on this one…….Posted 7 years agodawsonSubscriber
I saw that he had pulled out of the race today – I wonder if that was the team retiring him on his behalf…Posted 7 years agoslowjoMember
I did that once will. I was doing a circuit race, in the bunch winding it up on the penultimate lap, I glanced at my speedo as we approached a bend, it read 32mph a split second later my front tyre blew out and I hit the deck hard. Split my helmet in 2, cracked several ribs, lost a lot of skin but fortunately, my bike was ok… the bar tape was scuffed up but that was it. Very painful, particularly getting e grit out. Strangely enough I was able to ride home and it wasn't until I was sitting in the bath that it all really began to hurt.
I had a major triathlon (my "target" event for that summer) in 5 days time. I didn't do very well funnily enough! Swim was slow, bike painful and the run was a shuffle in 27 degrees of heat.Posted 7 years agotragically1969Member
Happened to me a few years back, guy moved over on the front of the bunch in a sprint and brought the guy down in front of me, they came off, i hit the deck hard, got run over by 2 guys who ended up on the deck too.
Result, one broken collarbone, 2 sprained wrists and several cracked ribs…..all mine…..it hurt…..lots…..Posted 7 years ago
