Chuck Pontius Crit (Cat 4) in Santa Clarita, CA. Half way through, a few riders went down and the pack split just in time for me to hit the brakes and prepare for impact. While I grazed off someone's rear wheel, I clipped out and skated on my cleats for a few feet. Meanwhile, the downed rider is shouting "That's it! I'm not racing anymore!" (I'm sure he'll be back in a week or two). I went back to my bike and checked it out. The rear wheel had shifted in the dropouts. Fixed it, got my free lap, and was back in the race. I'm pretty proud of myself for handling that as well as I did. I'm not proud of myself for going off the back just before 5 to go. I need to get stronger if I'm going to hang.
Anybody know what exactly caused that crash?
