We had our 5th of 6th TT's at Lowes Motor Speedway Wednesday night. Right after crossing the finish line my rear wheel locked up and even slid out of the rearfacing dropout. Just like the NASCAR guys doing a burnout, there was skidding and smoke!! I flat spotted the tire all the way to the threads. I was really lucky to keep the bike up as I was going in the high 20's and completely spent....I think I even saw the rear end pass me a couple times!!
Could very well be a broken axle. Just like the Nascar guys I took it back to the garage!!
It wasn't shifting right while I was doing the TT and jumping out of the cogs. Even still I managed my best time of the year and keep a hold on 2nd place in my age group. I still have to ride the last event as the 3rd place guy and me are separated by just a few points. Whoever wins that event gets 2nd and the other gets 3rd.
I was hoping to put off getting the wheel fixed but looks like I'm going to need it in a few weeks now.
