Olympic Cycling: Only Fun When Someone Gets Hurt

Over the weekend I turned on the Olympics from time to time, just to see what was going on and it seemed like all they wanted to show me was badminton. To me, that sport is about one notch above Slip N’ Slide races, but the Chinese sure do seem to take it seriously. Apparently there was some action happening, though, as one of our readers sent us this clip of a pretty gnarly crash during a women’s cycling race. It wouldn’t have been nearly as bad if that one racer didn’t get jammed into that roadside ditch. It’s too bad her Spandex didn’t have a wardrobe malfunction, then she could’ve made our list of the sexiest Olympic events.

Thanks Gene for sending this in.
