My brother got tore up pretty badly one time. He used to long distance race and came upon an ealy morning bridge that hadn't quite thawed yet. He was in the midst of a race and on the exit of a corner was this small bridge. He was just coming out of the corner and hit the slick portion of the bridge. He slid for a good distance and got cut up. Road rash is an ugly thing.
On another occasion he was pulled over. The officer #%&*$# him out until my brother told him this was a legal race course. Not sure why the officer didn't know about it or see other cyclists (He HAD an entrace number on the back of his jersey!!!! SHEEEEESH!). LOL
60 MPH is fast, but not uncommon with drafting techniques. It's the shaving of the legs that wrings the last MPH out of your effort.
