    Fabio Felline Crash (slightly graphic) Amstel Gold

    Amstel Gold 2016

    Am I missing something here? Did he not enter the scene playing with his quick release or something? Doesn't he jam his own hand into his front wheel crashing himself?

    That's exactly what it looks like.

    Not his proudest moment.

    I was watching it live, and didn't catch what happened. Eurosport kept replaying the camera bike catching up to him.

    one time I got my fingers slightly buzzzed by the spokes when I was reaching down trying to close the lever of the front brake. That gave me a rude wakeup. After that experience, I now stop my bike completely if I need to check on something, even answering the phone.

    I bet he was attempting to drag his hand on the tire to clear debris. I see riders do it all the time at the start of an event to prevent a flat from something the tire picked up while milling around the start area. However, it looks like he tried to do it behind the fork.

    He was definitely fiddling with the bike.. not exactly sure what he was doing, but I'm guessing that he's trying to clear his tire. I've seen a lot of racers do this, some do it almost automatically when they roll through any sort of gravel/ debris... without even thinking about it.
