Rough Road - Rough Start Rio64
Team USA should have taken Brent Brookwalter's first 200 meters as a sign. As the American turned into the first corner, cutting across the wet cobble stones, his front wheel slid out from under him. He scooted across the slippery road before getting back on to his TT machine. It had to rattle his cage, and I am sure it contributed to his being outside of the top 15 finishers. It is so tough that an athlete only gets one shot at the Olympics.
