As per Sporza commentary, they got a message in that confirmed it was the tubular rolling off. Even without the confirmation, watching the replay, it looks very likely, because of the sudden wobble without any reason (no potholes / cracks in the road,...)Did they tell anything about it?
Okay, exclusively unfortunately then. Gotta say that it looked like she took the corner all wrong (speed and position on the bike) to me when I saw the replay, but I'll admit that may be down to my own bias.So it was Dygert's front tubular rolling off.
That totally explains the wobble.
Bad points for the mechanic! Loosing a world title and, potentially breaking parts of your body becasue of a bad mechanic!
Okay. Payed for my curiosity.
It depends really as to whether she's still a baby. It seems miles on the clock are a key consideration really. I mean, Tatiana Guderzo and Mavi García are the same age, but one is coming into her own and achieving to her best level, the other is now a decade removed from her best performances. There's a lot of real young stars on the scene - Wiebes, Lippert, Harvey, Dygert, Novolodskaya - as well as some real late bloomers. Van der Breggen would definitely be retiring while still truly elite, but she wouldn't be retiring that much earlier than Emma Johansson (shortly after turning 33), Monia Baccaille (32) and Emma Pooley (just before turning 32), later than Nicole Cooke (29), and at the same point as Mara Abbott (just before turning 31) and Nicole Brändli (just after turning 30).Anna van der Breggen . . . having a great year. In women's cycling age years, she's still a baby. Maybe she re-thinks retirement?
Amber is a great rider from days gone by, but she's a full on mayfly at this stage who always overperforms her season's norms at the Worlds ITT, but for the most part she's taken about as seriously as Rebellin is these days and may be a prime candidate for "doing a Longo".Found a lady for Rebellin at sixth place.
Couldn't see anything on tv that would indicate the tire came off either.According to Chad Haga such wobble of the front wheel was caused by breaking through the corner with only front break (only her left hand were on the braking lever). It didn't seem like her tubular came off. So possible rider mistake may have caused the crash.
Yes, as an inexperienced motorcyclist, i once made a similar mistake 20 years ago, braking only with the front brake. As soon as your front wheel starts to slide, there are two options. Either it's over immediately and your bike will slide from under you. Or when the initial slide is not "that" bad, you will try to compensate, but will overcompensate and your wheel goes the other way, and you try to compensate again, and again... resulting in a wobble that you can't stop anymore. In my case it ended with a crash against two parked cars.According to Chad Haga such wobble of the front wheel was caused by breaking through the corner with only front break (only her left hand were on the braking lever).
