The last stage of the recent 2010 Tour of Langkawi brought the bunch together for a final field sprint and ‘Cando was in the mix for another good finish until another rider decided to wipe an unsightly smudge off of his shoe with the edge of one (or several) of Alex’s rear spokes. Sure, it’s one of those flash ‘pro-only’ moves if you pull it off at 40mph, but really, it’s not nearly as cool as keeping the rubber side down, mid-sprint, when someone’s borrowed half of your rear wheel.
Here’s a highlight video of that last stage. At about 2:15 you can catch Cando surfing in for 7th in the sprint. Wow!
Hat’s off to you, Alex. We’re glad you’re safe and sound, and thanks for showing us how it’s done.
