    What Robbie said to René

    Thought that was interesting. Then I wondered, Why do handlebars break during a race? Are these guys breaking their handlebars because they're pulling so hard on them while sprinting? Or is it because the handlebars are made with really lite materials?

    Hope it's not a stupid question.

    handlebars shouldn't break... flex but not break - most likely the thing was either already damaged or defective... then broke under the stress of him pulling on them...
    "The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight But they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night." -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
