    He finished the stage. No word on long-term injury though.

    Steephill is reporting that Frank Schleck suffered no injuries after that crash. Unbelievable.

    Here he is kissing his lucky charm:

    wtf happened? You see him clipping out almost likes he's trying to put a foot down. Mechanical?

    Did his back wheel start to slide out, and he straightened up trying to recover?
    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    Just look like he misjudged corner, went in a little to hot. The guy behind him you can see broke much earlier.

    A little target fixation there? Damn. Uninjured or no, you know that scene will wake him up for a few nights.

    I'm imagining him falling into a bed of moss and ferns with naked virgins all around... Upon landing he was fed a grape and giving a rub down.

    Incredible.

    for a pro tour bike racer f. schleck isnt exactly bike handling wizard, his crash at lombardia last year was very cat 3 like. glad he's OK, by the looks of that it could have ended very badly.

    he was decending terribly the whole race. he was all over the place. He just took that turn too wide and put his foot down to try and stay upright.

    Yeah, but he's a long way from the guardrail, and it doesn't even look likes he's turning sharply when his foot comes out. With all the room he had it would appear he could have made the turn, or at least laid it down in a fashion where he stayed on this side of the guardrail and lost a little skin.

    I'm thinking something mechanical happened, or he hit something in the road that made his wheel slide unexpectedly.

    Otherwise, he looked like a deer in the headlights.
