    Early one morning while riding to work in the dark, I went around a corner that was sandy. Because I had been practicing steering through corners I was able to get through it without going down. It felt like my rear wheel slid about a foot, but I'm sure it was only inches.

    At state track titles saw a guy riding his road bike, goes next to his track bike, does a stand still grabs his track bike puts it over his shoulder and keeps riding. All without taking feet out of pedals.

    At Surfers International criterium an MGZT rider done a wheelie down most of the finishing straight.

    My personal best was more luck than skill, Time Trial with a howling tail wind on an aero bike with a Camsin Disk on rear, doing between 50 - 60km the rim delaminated from the disk and rolled to the side, as a result I was doing 50kmh on aero bars with 2 2mil thick sheets of carbon fibre riding on the rear. as the only brake I had was rear (track bike) I couldnt slow down. Back wheel was skipping about 45 degree sideways, as I pulled it down it would skip 45 degree the other side. did this 10 times before I eventually slowed and got control. Closest I have ever come to actually filling my chamios
