This has got to be one of the worst equipment fails in roller racing, Tim was riding his ass off in the finals and just fell over into the other set of rollers. Check the damage

Yea... so I dont think I wanna buy a Masi anytime soon. I guess its good it happened that way instead of on the road. Still sucks.

Same thing happened to a Pake last year in Memphis. It's not the bike's fault, it falls on the weakling who didn't tighten the fork clamp enough.

Also, that's a fucking amazing climbing wall. I wish we had something like that in Memphis.

The forks were clamped tight as hell after each race, I watched them do it. It was simply a freak accident.

I'd ride a Masi any day.

The bolts for the fork clamp have a tendency to come loose, this was by no means the bikes fault. Some one forgot to re check the bolts. Otherwise the whole fork would have folded.
