Canton Cup Race Report

Canton Cup Chainstay Cam from colin reuter on Vimeo.

I lasted ninety. freaking. seconds.

I had a front row start, which I converted into sixth wheel off the pavement. Lindine, Keough and Goguen were CHECKING OUT after 90 seconds and for no good reason I wanted to be up there. I lapped wheels with Sam Morse, ended up on the outside of a corner that was much rougher than I realized, lost the front end and PLANTED my left knee in the grass. I bounced to a stop and was really surprised by little desire I had to jump up and grab my bike.

Instead I sat there in shock while the field rode by, stood up, determined that my already-questionable knee was gonna have a massive bruise on it, and decided not see how much damage I could do to it with 60 minutes of adrenaline.

Lame, but at least the footage was solid!

Ouch, Colin, sorry it ended so early for you, heal up fast!

The ending footage with the cyclists going by while your bike was still on it's side was quite elegiac.

Chainstay cam is cool! And it even survived a crash on the cam side! Nicely done! Chalk it up to product testing.

If that post crash footage doesn't make the end of season Best of, I don't know what will.

Get better. Only heckling G this weekend will be boring.
