Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Oof!

Oof!

I already posted this in the track forum, but I figured some of you would appreciate it.

AHHH!!!

On a tubular? I thought you could ride those things when they flatted?

They had pretty good control of the bike even after the flat. That's crazy!

The wheel just disintegrated!!!

Yeah 40 mph is no longer sprint territory on track tandems. Pretty insane but I feel bad for the stoker (how can he even breath!?).

That videos nuts, their wheel just disintegrates over a few seconds.

You would fall apart too if you had 300 pounds worth of dude smashing one of your lips into the floor.

The stokers are blind, I believe.

I'm surprised he kept it upright that long. He was doing OK until the wheel started coming apart.
