Fan catches foul ball Spectator catches flying clutch lever

IMG_3534 In Loop 1, Section 2 yesterday, one of the Junior class riders slipped off the angled ledge at the start and his bike smashed to the rocks below.

As the left handlebar hit the ground, it snapped the clutch lever and sent it spinning 20 feet or more into the air with a loud ‘ping.’ 

This spectator yelled out "I got it" and made a one-handed catch, earning a loud roar of approval from the assembled crowd. (Apologies for the fuzzy photo… I had to zoom way in.)
