    Try copy pasting that ^^ with spaces removed.

    I watched the crashing one just now and I kind of laughed when the strategies for actually going down were discussed.

    To avoid putting out your arm or to try to roll into a crash is excellent advice but who can count on doing that on pure instinct when the fit hits the shan?

    When I think back to some of the crashes I've had - twice bringing down a bunch and some real solo stinkers - I can't really remember for the most part how I actually went down.

    The two most recent - the only two I've had in my "modern cycling era" - were both on pavé and I didn't put my arm out as the video suggests. I don't think there was anything instinctual about it but there's no doubt I came out of them better off than I would have with my arms taking the impact. Some scrapes and a sore knee but none of the clavicle issues you risk with arm impacts.

    Corresponds quite well with what the video said about never overlapping wheels. :D Probably the situation here was also compounded by a lack of control when using aero bars.

    But how did that guy not stay upright?  :wut He looked to have it well under control even with a pretty busted front wheel. He decelerated quite safely and looked like coming to a safe stop but then he poleaxed it quite suddenly.

    Probably not, Tone. Australians drive on the left.

    Here on group rides one really strong IM guy shows up with his TT bike, but he never ride on aero bars, if so he did it at rear and no one is danger.

    Riding in the middle of a group with your hands on the aero bars - that's an absolute no-go. You're on a group ride, not a pro doing a TTT. :fp
    I stay far away from any such people I encounter on my rides (plus they're normally way faster than me anyway).

    I would also say he rescued the situation quite well, but then hit the brakes to hard in the end, and logically somersaulted.
