BROKEN BIKE NO PROBLEM JUST RUN TO FINISH

Sometimes you have to think fast on your feet.

26-year old American Eamon did at the Gullegem Kermesse ride in Belgium where he snagged  a top 10 finish despite having to run cross the finish stripe after another rider crashed into him during the final sprint.

“As soon as I stopped sliding I tried to get back on my bike but my chain and gears were in a mess. There was no time to fix it because the bunch were coming,” Eamon told Cycling Weekly.

“I handed my bike to a spectator and ran as fast as I could for the finish line with everything I had in my body.”

In cycling shoes with cleats that go click-clack-click and slip all over the asphalt he ran across the finish line to secure an impressive 10th place finish.

Bravo, Lucas.
