|I'm trying to figure out how to post pictures. If it doesn't work, please disregard. If it does, check out that guy on the left. He had some nice road rash after this one.|

|NEW PRODUCT: THE RONCO TARMAC TESTER
Take one carbon-based life form, clip onto bike.
Add oil, road marking tape, or use tubular tires with no cement.
Turn bike on vertical axis until adhesion coeffecient exceeds limit.
'Good' pavement should remove 2mil lycra or better immediately, and impregnate life form with gravel.
Thanks for the photo!!

If this is the Pro/1/2 field, and that's an Al's / GS Ciao guy, then I was standing in that corner talking to Leonard (the ACA membership guy) when that crash happened. All the spectators within earshot ducked and/or grimaced.
I judged the guy an 8 on cringe factor, 10 on style (he bounded up like Rubberman and ran to the pit for his free lap) and 7 on the huck-o-meter, cause he flew horizontally thru the air for ways before landing.
