Cycling crash video

This cycling crash video plays like a critical scene in a horror film. Everything is going calmly, with smooth-voiced British commentators to ensure that we’re lulled into a false sense of security. A group of four riders, ahead of everyone else in a 22-mile race at the World Road Cycling Championships were in a group (Is it still a peleton if it consists of competing riders?) when all of a sudden, the lead rider just…

just…

just…

just watch the video:

Holy hell, did that cyclist go flying. It’s easy to lose a sense of how fast these guys are going in this cycling crash video. Imagine the fastest you’ve ever gone on a bike. These guys are going faster. And the lead one just flat-out hit the barrier and launched like she was in an ejection seat.

Remarkably, Annemiek van Vleuten, the rider who hit the barrier, didn’t get the worst of the injuries. A rider behind her, Anna van der Bregge, couldn’t avoid the carnage and broke her pelvis in the mix-up. Yikes.

Fortunately, all injured are on the road to recovery, as this Tweeted pic following the cycling crash video shows:
