About halfway into the 1/2 race Saturday in Napa. While I was in a small break, my back wheel started to feel loose in the "P" turn. I was able to nurse it in for 7th and after the race was surprised to see that the rubber had separated from the casing, 9" long. Got home pumped it up and a minute later the thing blew! Would it have made it another lap???
Sometimes we get lucky.
