I have to disagree. The almost universal reaction to this sort of event is "Oh Sh*t"

hmmmmm.

body in line with the field.
front wheel 25* off that line.
no way to correct front wheel.

if he didn't, he'd win the biggest prize of all "holy $hit I can't believe you didn't crash!" prizes.

I think most modern non carbon steerers are aluminum. And I may or may not have plugged up the bench grinder at work with aluminum the last time I cut one and had to shave just a bit more off. Ahem.

Yes but reason 1 through 37560 all has to do with backwoods superstitions, and witchcraft.
