Can you cite the source of this astounding update? Most of the new sources have not updated anything that I see. Maybe you have inside information?

Uh, Mike Woods admitted he messed up and caused the crash.

I think that's always been the case. It's just so much easier today to repeatedly broadcast a message (real or fake), so manipulating people has become more commonplace.

So you are saying that carbon fiber bikes keep you from breaking bones? Go figure...they put titanium in your bones to fix them.

Did Moscon's bike just really snapped in half? He didn't hit anything on the road. That's a nice clean break I say.
Did you see they said that a race team car of some team ran the bike over and destroyed it...crazy!

Yeah, youíd think a race bike would be designed to support both the rider and a 160 pound projectile.

You understand that it was the team car, running over the bike, that caused it to break as it did, right?

Just checking.

It is OK if people don’t like CF bikes, they are not for everyone. But don’t use this incident to justify your dislike.

Peace out!

Yep after the bodies hit the deck the bikes were all rideable until a team car then drove over it. I donít think any bike will survive that.

Haters will always hate no matter the justification.

sorry, can't think of many bikes that can survive being run over by a 4000lb car (1814kg for you metric folks).

I don't happen to be a CF bike fan but it's basically because I'm a recreational rider who can buy, say a CAAD 12, that will get me everything I can use for a significant discount over a CF bike. It's not because I think a CF bike is going to disintegrate in the middle of a ride.
