Broken Chain Means Pick It Up And Run

Wiley Mosley of Latham, N.Y., drew a huge round of applause for his heroics during the first lap of the Men's B 30-39 race.

The chain on his bicycle snapped at the start, leaving Mosley to watch the other 116 riders sprint up the first hill. Undeterred, the 30-year-old shouldered his bicycle and began chasing them. He ran his bike nearly halfway around the course before reaching the pits, where his spare bike awaited him.

Mosley quickly got on and started feverishly pedaling to catch up as the crowd cheered him on.
