Question about JU's crash...Cima Coppi
Jul 23, 2001 10:00 AM
I missed watching the coverage 2 days ago when JU overshot the corner and bailed out over his bars. I did see later highlights of the crash, but they did not show him get back up and continue riding. My question is, the crash looked really nasty for both JU and his bike, so did he require a new bike to get back going again?

I would have thought on one of those super light climbing bike he surely would have tacoed a wheel at leased, maybe even broke the frame. Those bikes are much more durable than we think they are to take a fall like that!!

I think there was a wheel change, but the bike was the same.
