€10,000 Trek bike snaps in half at Herald Sun Tour

trek bike snaps herald sunt tour

As riders struggled to hold the bunch in the wicked crosswinds during the first stage of the Herald Sun Tour, Laurent Didier was one of a number of riders brought down in crashes as riders scrambled to hold the wheels.

The Trek-Segafredo rider was involved in a crash with Thomas Kaeslar and Jesse Featoby, both Aussies from the Drapac EF team and Benjamin Andrews of Oliver’s Real Food.

But his bike was the most striking victim of the pile-up, lying on the road in two pieces held together with nothing but a hydraulic disc brake hose.

The injuries to his back, elbow, leg and hand that Didier sustained in the crash meant that he was not able to start stage two.
