This is a crazy crash from Tour of Utah. The corner was obviously very difficult, decreasing radius. I’ve had this issue twice in my life. Once, during the Coor’s Classic, I hit the La Vie Claire car that was stopped in the middle of a corner on a descent. The other time in the Tour of Texas, I pegged the Campagnolo motorcycle that had stopped to service Doug Smith, who had crashed on a corner. The first time I was relatively unscathed. The 2nd time I broke my arm. Anyway, hope these guys are okay. Link to injuries at Velonews.
Oh, thanks Ed Moore – I was winning the British Milk Race, then hit a car and pretty much destroyed myself. Another American rider on the National Team, Andy Paulin hit it first, about a second before me. Here is a link to the article and a picture of the automobile. It wasn’t a Porsche.
How about this comment over at Youtube – People can be incredibly insensitive sometimes.
