Anyone have a picture of Kirichenko???

When he snapped his handlebars at the 1989 World Championships?

Thanks

I've got the video, VHS only though. It just comes off in his hand at 70kmh, he kind of looks at it, then throws it away. Brilliant sangfroid.

He was offered another ride as it was a legitimate equipment failure.

Couldn't back up....too spent.
