    Looks like a CX race, and he didn't dismount in time to go over the barrier.

    Kind of a pity, since he seemed to be doing well up to that point.

    He was, y'know, writhing in pain. I'm guessing shoulder/collar bone.

    That's Joey Mullan from the Starcrossed Singlespeed Shootout. It was a short course eliminator-round style race with the top N racers from each heat advancing. Joey got the holeshot and took off like his arse was on fire, and he was leading the pack coming into that barricade. Between coming in hot and being slightly off-put by only having a single barricade, he clanged it pretty hard.
    He ended up being OK and racing again at the Rapha/Focus GP the next day.

    For gunner and Mithrandir: video of the MFG CX Series #1 race from a couple weeks ago. This is the Cat-4 35+ race, which is a considerably slower race than Joey's. He races Cat 1/2 level, although the Singlespeeds aren't broken down into divisions. He's currently sitting 6th overall in the MFG Series, sharing the top ranks with guys like Craig Etheridge (2010 CMWC) and JT Fountain (2009 USAC National SSCX Champ)

    Some people are awesome enough to bunnyhop them, even when there are doubles one right after the other. I'm not Jeremy Powers, so I'm not even gonna try it. I'll get off and run over them like a normal human being.

    I used to watch cyclocross races in Austin in the late 70s. There was one short guy who could jump his bike over most barriers without getting off.
