Fabian Cancellara Is A Straight-Line Cyclist

I think my favorite part about bike races are the crashes. Sure it's fun to see the tactics and attacks, but the crashes are where the real entertainment lies. And Fabian Cancellara provided SO MUCH ENTERTAINMENT on Saturday at the Olympics.

I mean, he looked good. He was in the lead group and, at the time, was just in front of the eventual winner -- though there were still about 10 miles to go. All he had to do was make the turn.

Instead ... lolnope. He did finish the race but dang that looks painful.
