    Cool photo sequence Levi crash

    http://www.velonews.com/photo/88056

    Cool Case Gibson sequence. Boonen looks like he's wondering where that small child on the road came from.

    Danielson is rider #33 right behind him, I wonder if he thought about coming off the top rope with a flying elbow so that he could prove how valuable of a team mate he is to DZ

    I love how calm everyone looks... Boonen skirts around the top of LL's helmet without a glance.

    Reason 102 why I could not hack pro cycling. No sense of calm. I would have to walk off that crash for 10 minutes before gettin back on that bike. Leave it to a sprinter to look like he just saw a squirrel in the road, no panic at all. Im not sure but it looked like 1 or 2 guys were laughing (or grimmacing I cant tell).

    A big part of it is that you do NOT look at the wreck... you keep it in the corner of your eye, look around/ahead of it, and go that way! Looks like most of them did that. Levi also looks like he tried to make himself as small as possible.

    They weren't going fast by any means but, they were moving along at around 16-18mph maybe?

    Boonen is a pro sprinter, crashes in front of him are no big deal.

    16-18MPH slow? Fast enough that I dont want to hit the cee-ment in my underwear. Hell, sliding into 2nd base in the dirt leaves a nice strwberry that makes sleeping difficult sometimes.
    Does anyone remember a crash last year (I want to say Brad Huff-TOMissouri) where he hit the barrier and his bike flew about 10 feet in the air.
