A “normal bike crash” in pictures.

So as you might know, I crashed out in spectacular fashion in yesterday’s crit, a photographer named Peter Morey was at hand to take some great action pictures. Know I can laugh about it and thought I share it so you can too.

Ok so what happened was: I made a move quite early on in the crit and built up a 15-20s lead over the chasing bunch, but I was pushing too hard through each corner and as I started to tire, I misjudged my speed into a 90 degree right hander and my back wheel slid and gripped again, causing my balance to shift and ultimately being “high-sided” of the bike.

So here’s photo one:

Just after my wheel slipped it gripped again, causing my weight to be shifted to the right. I am trying hard to hold it together and stay on the bike.

My facial expression the funniest. Staring into the distance as if nothing happened while my back is flying about behind me.
