Unconfirmed what type bike it was or the proper label for the person who decided to join the Giro yesterday, but here’s video and it starts around :10 from the planters. Read it was a dickhead, hipster fixie, cruiser, maybe it was a vacationer? But like a crash-causing, cat 5 vapor, he/she is gone.
As Mark V noted on Facebook
Last time a fixed gear bike was in the Giro was a decade ago when Aussie Stuart O’Grady tried to win the 1.15km prologue with basically a kilometer time trial track bike with brakes (he didn’t win, but he didn’t cause a pileup either).
We’re reminded of that one time at the Redmond Derby, a kid just wanted to race and everyone thought he jumped into it.
