This is honestly already the case. Benootís seattube literally flew off his R5 when he crashed in stage 4 or whatever.

Now imagine that, but it's all of it. The whole bike is never more than a few dozen degrees away from the force acting on it turning it into a massive crumple zone.

Does anyone have a favorite for worlds? It kind of reminds me of last year's course where there's a couple hard punches each lap. That was a really fun race to watch.

I guess Wout has to be up there.

I'm also really curious is Dygert can repeat her performance from last year.

Not sure where VdP's fitness is at but it would be interesting to see them both going for it.

I get the feeling with this year someone completely random will get it.

I can't see anyone else but Ganna for the TT though. The man is an absolute monster right now.

Ganna is going well, but also the T-A TT was about as close as you can get to an individual pursuit off the track.

I think last year was our "someone completely random" for the next while.

Has anyone ever won the ITT and road race in the same year? Wout could conceivably do it.

Going to be hard for VdP to win the RR when heís not in it.

not on the men's side. olano won both but in different years. though the tt was only added to the worlds in the nineties.

Also Lizzy Banks riding an unbranded Cervelo P5 Rim (ie the previous version), probably because Chapter 2 don't make a TT frame.

USA Cycling say "conscious and talking", so hopefully not too bad. I don't see this putting her off though because she apparently hates riding bikes already.

It's a deep tissue cut and will put her off the bike for a long while it heals. Gutted for her.

I dunno if the tub needed to come off, going at 65kph in cross winds on the tt bars with a flat is going to be a challenge at the best of time

Caley Fretz noted she was on clinchers...going to guess Corsa Speeds with latex tubes. I looked for clear signs of a flat in the slow-mo, but couldnít see anything definitive. Her front wheel cocks right suddenly after she initiates her lean, and then the wobbles start from there. Iíd almost want to say her front QR was loose, but her wheel probably would have flown off after the bike when flying.
