Crash Video

A few months ago, I saw a video of a recent championship event where not one, but two riders rolled tires off in the final straight and crashed. It was the weirdest thing I ever saw with unglued inflated tubulars rubberbanding around crashing riders. Does anyone know of this and could they point me in the direction of the video? Not for prurient reasons, I want to look more carefully at the tires as they exit the rims.

Correction: inadequately glued tubulars.

Bad. Disturbing and unexpected at high level competition.
