These things are unavoidable just because they happen in an instant, and little things like, well, potholes or debris getting caught in your spokes, will happen at the worst possible moment.
At that point, all you can do is go with the flow of physics, and sing under your breath "Planet Earth is blue, and there's nothing I can do..." and hope Ground Control brings you to a soft landing.
