Tour de Taiwan


#21

:cry:


#22

Fuck that looks nasty, what happened? Hope he’s ok.


#23

I didn’t see what happened, but friends are saying blood is from his glasses cutting his skin. Not head injury from the crash.


#24

Is there a live ticker with distance and names? Can’t work out much form the live feed.


#25

Somebody told me about the accident, but hadn’t seen it… until now. That’s fucked up. How did the helmet get off?


#26

There’s few possibilities, but being the west coast highway, there’s even more.

Normally, the ramps up and down the speed way are very good road surface. It could’ve been a huge gust of wind or those gaps on the metal connectors.

I don’t see a distance ticker @ShutUpLegs


#27

The little Colombian’s going for glory here. Go you good thing!


#28

Another good stage…hope everyone is ok.


#29

You’re speculating about the cause of a crash? 99% of the time it’ll be a touch of wheels. I suppose it could have been a banana skin. :wink:


#30

The helmet? He took it off.


#31

Yeah, I meant the helmet. I just saw blood and a helmetless head :stuck_out_tongue:

I hope it’s just some superficial cuts…


#32

Commentators thought the Colombian was off the front right to the very end. Made for a very confusing finale.


#33

Luckily(?!) I don’t understand the commentary, but it was certainly a bit confusing as the catch was not seen. Looked like the Colombian came in some way down, so I wonder if he had a mechanical…?


#34

Probably just blew up, he’s not actually a climber. Was hoping to get a jump on the field before that final pitch.


#35

Going up and down on Renai is a little different from going up and down the hilly parts of Taiwan. Top dog in Taipei Avila took 27th place in Taoyuan.

#37

Helluva stage today. Really enjoyed that.


#38

Yup, awesome. Hope that dude that hit the retaining wall is ok…he looked to be in shock.


#39

This is a blood sport! lol

Awesome !


#40

The guy who hit the concrete barrier at speed yesterday was looking much better after a trip to the ER.
