I’m not a big cyclocross guy, but there was apparently a touch of wheels that caused some excitement heading into the sand on Day 2 of Gloucester this year. Colt McElwaine was in the right place at the right time and got the original, better quality video—I just added slow-mo.
NOTE: contains pottymouth.
“There’s almost a foot-deep trough in the sand,” Johnson said. “I got in there first and I didn’t see what happened to (Page).”
Page had a different take. “Johnson took my front wheel out,” he told VeloNews before the podium ceremony.
Page tumbled to his left and had to get rolling again in heavy sand, with Driscoll and Powers marking him.
