For those of you who have not yet seen this crash be prepared, it is a loud one. Here are 2 clips of the same crash that happened last Tuesday in Stage 5 of the Tour De Swiss. Frank Schleck had been in the lead off the front when he was caught by Markus Fothen who was the lone chase. The two worked together for a bit up the mountain, over the top and then as you will see Schleck crashes into the rail on the twisty descent launching himself clear of the road with around 4km to the finish. Fothen went on to win the stage. Frank Schleck somehow lived, climbed up out of the ravine and got back on a new bike riding away to finish the stage in 44th place. Seems as if that drop on the other side of the rail was large enough to kill or maim him instantly but his reflexes, luck and a strong body combined to save his human form. I like the commentary on the first one better but the audio of the impact is more impressive on the second.
