I think if they had got the shot just a few seconds later it would be there for sure. The ones in back seem to realize very little of what's going on, but the dudes up front are definitely thinking it.

Video of the crash.

Don't want to start the helmet debate again, but I think Haussler was spared a serious injury by his. Look at 1:00 into this clip for what I mean.

Also, it's cool to see in the video how Cav's front wheel springs back from the way it is captured in the photograph. Wonder if it would have still be rideable after that.

Yeah, I wouldn't really think so either, but I expected carbon to crack and break when bent like that and not spring back into shape. You can still see it turning after he falls.
