I skipped the first free food stop at about Mile 24. At about 6:40AM, just 2-3 miles beyond the food stop a fast pace line passed me with maybe 6 or 7 riders. They had only gotten a few bike lengths beyond me and a few other riders in front of me when they just seemed to explode. One rider slid across the center line to the far shoulder and two or three more went down in the middle of our lane. I and everyone in front of me managed to miss them and get through or stop short.
It seemed as if there were at least two, maybe three riders on the pavement.
I stopped just beyond the crash and witnessed several more people stopping, giving aid, and calling for help.
I hope it wasn't as bad as it looked. Was anyone on the forum involved in this crash or know anything about it?
