Follow the crazy adventures of an Alabama cyclist taking on the Race Across America (again) in 2017.
Wed, 1/29 @ 2:23PM – pat crashes
Wed, 1/29 @ 2:23PM – pat crashes. This shady section on top of the lower vesclub hill is super icy. Pat crashes twice. This is him just after he has gotten up from the first crash and right before he crashes again. The ice he is standing on is crazy slippery. The slope right below where I’m standing is close to 15% and when I go to unclip to take this picture, I lose my footing and have to bail off the bike. Fortunately there is no ice where I’m standing so I don’t fall but my bike slides a bit down the hill without me on it. The other guys say that counts as a crash, but I maintain that I am still crash-free for the whole day.
