Looking for an old crash video

I came across a video years ago, and of course have never been able to find it in the thousands of crash videos on YouTube. But this one was classic - and I think it was during one of the classics. Looks like some older, veteran cyclist, who comes up to the camera motorcycle and starts talking. He's chatting away, not really paying attention, as a group comes up behind him. He must have been drafting the motorcycle or something. Then he waves and moves off to the right ... directly in the path of the oncoming group. Big crash, much (morbid) hilarity.

Saw it once, didn't bookmark it. Just curious if this rings any bells for anyone. Thanks!

I can't help you, but I have a crash video of my own crash (handlebar mount), and I've not been able to watch it more than once. It's probably close to 10 years old now, but I still can't watch it. Worst crash I've ever had, 30mph slide out in a curve on chip seal road, into the gravel shoulder...I looked like a package of 80% ground beef for a while. Nothing gruesome in the video, but the audio of me moaning and writhing around afterward is too much.

It will never be on YouTube

Too much bad karma in finding that funny. No thanks.

Ah come on, a crash not shared is a crash wasted! I've been enjoying crash videos since the Havoc series of motorsport fails in the 1980s, and i just wish my own fails were able to be shared - including the crash that gave me thirteen fractures!
