MIKE HOGAN GETS TAKEN OUT AT THE ABSA CAPE EPIC, SOUTH AFRICA
Below is a video from this weeks Absa Cape Epic. Some consider this the toughest Mountain Bike race in the world. Mike Hogan and Thomas Dooley were racing for Justin's (teams consists of two riders and they must start and finish each stage together) during stage 5 of this grueling event when a rider from another team made an ill advised inside pass on Hogan and caused this horrible crash. To set this up, Dooley is in the camera shot when the video starts and Hogan is filming the video. Another rider from another team makes a very ill advised inside pass on Hogan, hits a ditch, tacos his wheel, and rolls in front of Hogan sending him over the bars and breaking ribs. The crash is horrible, the sound makes me nauseous. Mike Hogan has won everything in his day, and he is a favorite two wheeler of many here in Colorado. Recover quick Mike, and we will see you back on the home dirt soon...
