Here's a video of a WR rider in the woods. He has a little mishap on the course. A little bruised up, but the bike suffered no damage. This is a rider who was racing one of the Texas circuit cross country races. One of my riding buddies heard about the get off from the folks who own the place where the race was held. It was found the crash happened because the rear brake was gone, as in no rear brake when he stepped on the pedal. Have any of you ever experienced any issues with the rear brake on a WR fading to the point of failure (all of a sudden) ? As the story goes, the brake was fine after the crash, but, the bike had sit for a bit while the guy was on the ground. The rider said he had one low side in a corner about ½ mile previous. The bike didn't die, he just picked up and kept going. Any chance any air got into the brake line ?
