Achapman Went down

In Leroy, IL....

On his way to MO this morning a lady slammed on her brakes and Chapman was on a small gravel patch... went down, cosmetic damages, needs new rear-set, bike is ok to ride, and had full gear, no injuries. Intuitive frame slider busted all the way off.

On the phone with him now, so Mods, he said its cool and wanted everyone to know.

Here's a pic from his phone:

I don't know the specifics that well, but I think he was behind a car on an off-ramp, who slammed on their brakes while he was in a small gravel patch(maybe some construction?), so his front end basically washed out and I think he was trying to swerve at the same time...

Glad your OK.

I was a bit worried when he posted he was getting ready to leave. It was raining hard here at that time, but I figured he had an agenda.
