Yeah, I saw that photo when it was the mtbr photo caption contest and could hardly believe it. I assume it's a busted steerer at the crown... I think he's even still got his hands around the grips. What a bad scene...

He probably got up and said, "Well, I've just closely inspected my tire's tread and it looks good."

The more I look at the photo, the more I'm convinced he's just trying to inflate his tire.

must be using eggbeaters, shoes are still clipped in,and he still on the same line as before, that's looking ahead, and following your line.

for a long time I thought the tire he is attempting to eat is the rear tire of a rider in front of him. that's HIS tire? where did his fork go?

is that a rack on the back of that bike?

I'm surprised that nobody has given the photographer a proper thank you yet. He must have worked very hard to cut this guys steerer when he wasn't looking, and know to cut it just right so it would break in front of him when he was waiting patiently with his camera. I think we should all give him the respect he deserves for his hard work and dedication to bring us amazing photos like this. :thumbsup:

Damn interesting way to get rhinoplasty. Much cheaper than a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon. Hope the guy healed up and got himself another bike.

The most likely scenario is the wheel is still attached to the fork and he his still holding onto his handlebars.
