Hard shifting under power. Bashed a rock when in the big ring. Stick between chain and gears. Small
animals caught in drivetrain trying to chew their way out.

I had number 3 happen to me in a race while cilimbing out of the saddle and put a 45degree bend in
my chain :-0 I just managed to unclip before toppling over. Luckily everyone else got round me. I
still have that piece of chain.
