Menchov Traction Fail: Total Recovery

You know that was on his mind the whole time – don’t crash – keep the bike upright. The fall reminded me of the time Jan crashed in the TT at the 2003 Tour, when he had to take risks to gain time. He lost 11 seconds.

The recovery was amazing. Doubtful the mechanics train like Formula one pit crew. I think he was just anticipating a crash and reacted without thinking.
