    You are about to enter a world of pain



    Wow. That's the most amazing velo picture I think I've ever seen. It's capturing the tiniest part of a second before he touches the floor. Once he does...


    Ouch

    Whoa, that wheel broke right through the fork. I hope wood hurts less than concrete.

    Thanks for the most amazing sight for today.

    Luckily, those guys were clad from to to bottom except elbows. At least a bit of protection.

    Sorry to disappoint. But I thought the combo of the quote/reference and picture would be appropriate. A little morning fun. *Smiley*

    maybe it's their expressions, but they look like twins or at least brothers?
    "Never do anything that you wouldn't want to have to explain to the paramedics."

    "His first words were 'did you bike today?' I hesitated before admitting that I had, thinking I was going to get a lecture on how bad the roads were and how I shouldn't try to bike home. Instead he said 'man, you're lucky! I've been sitting in traffic for over 1/2 hr, and I've only gone about 2 miles. Some guy on a bike passed me about 20 minutes ago and I'm sure he's home by now'."

    your wheels broken dude....

    you really gotta wonder if he won? before that wheel exploded i suspect he was a hair ahead of the other dude. would definitely be the coolest win ever.

    That fork is going to leave a 10 foot long divot in the planks I bet.



    [Wait, is it weird to use the future tense about an event that probably took place 50 years ago? The track has been repaired, these guys are probably in retirement homes, if they're still around....]
