VIDEO: Criterium racer celebrates too early

The Grand Prix of Beverly criterium race in Massachusetts, saw a hectic turn of events after a rider celebrated too early before crashing down across the finish line

Sam Rosenholtz was racing in the men’s elite category for a $1000 prize pot but the moment got the better of him as he sat up too early to celebrate.

With less than a bike’s length between him and his competitor, Jake Keough, his celebrations were premature as he came up short. With his hands off the handlebars he couldn’t react to Keough’s bike as it sped past him across the finish line causing him to crash.

While Rosenholtz, a member of CCB Velotooler, finished the race in second his finish line crash also brought down a fellow contender who couldn’t swerve around the downed rider quick enough.

The CCB Velotooler rider seemingly came away with no injuries and was soon smiling once more atop the podium.

 

Epic finish to P12 race @gpbeverly #gpbeverly WOW!!!
