So that is what happened

Yesterday I published a link to a photo that made it appear that Columbia-Highroad rider Bernhard Eisel was off his bike in the middle of a sprint.  Here is the video of the final meters.  It probably doesn’t do a racer much good to watch this one too many times!

He isn’t off the bike running.  Neither is he quite as close to the front as the photo makes it appear.  Of course, a top ten with your feet out of the pedals is better than laying on the ground with your helmet cracked in four different places.
