But I can admire a good crash.
Recently, at the Molecaten Drentse 8 in Hoogeveen, Netherlands, Australian cyclist Loren Rowney found herself face first on the pavement with a bike on her back after an overzealous fan reached at the wrong time.
Rowney was in a race for first place when a fan reached out and grabbed her handlebars causing her to hit the ground in a hurry. Why the fan reached out in the first place is up for debate.
What is known is that Rowney went from competing for first to finishing seventh. She also suffered a broken collarbone.
No word on what happened with the fan. Guess we can call this “Handlebar-Gate.”
