Christian’s Giro Crash

The photos coming from the Giro are incredible, including these two showing Christian Vandevelde down and out of the race (sucks! Get well and back on the bike.). Reader IronmanBobby noticed on Twitter

Damn that bike looks folded. Reminds me of Hincapie’s sheered steerer tube and that scene from the TDF, where a racer hits a dog and the frame turns in on itself.

As Matt White said in the NYT

“There’s no soft landing at 50k.”


Material debate? Too light?
