Red Barn drama

I almost forgot about the A race drama at Red Barn! On the last lap of the A race, it was looking like Swanson first, Hareland second and Bergman third. The race was won by the right-hand turn into the hill down to the runup. I'm not sure who tried to pass whom, but coming into that corner Bergman and Dan Casper ran into each other and got their bikes thoroughly tangled. It took them over a minute to get them untangled. People were yelling at them to just run them together to the finish!
Bergman was not happy at all, throwing up his hands in frustration like Vino in the Tour, and yanking on the bikes while Casper tried to get them untangled a bit more scientifically. Bergman had already rolled a tubular earlier in the race, and was down a brake and a rear tubular after the tangle-up. I was able to get a couple of pics.
