Fabian Cancellara flatted on the cobbles in Holleweg yesterday and changed wheels, when he noticed brake problems. He needed a bike change with less than 50 km to go to to the finish. Watch this smooth as silk exchange with the Saxo Bank team mechanics (with a nice assist from Rabobank?)
Saxo Bank repaired the bike and took a shortcut to meet up with Cancellara again so he could get his racing bike back, after which he went on the attack for a victory in the 2010 Ronde van Vlaanderen.
H/T to Zoe. Results, news, links and photos at Steephill.TV. Hover on 2010 Tour of Flandres photos below for captions. I didn’t see any of Fabian’s trademark fingerbangs this time.
Damn…video has been removed…
Oh no! It was pretty impressive.
Fabian's not a fingerbanger, is he? That would ruin it for me…
Oh that's right, that's Contador.
All of these European names confuse me. I should pick a real American sport with American names.
