Giro Spectator Crash

boo

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.
