The Party Line

In a response to a question posed at Velonews, Bontragger had this to say reagrding George's failed steerer tube at Paris-Rubaix:

Technical Q&A with Lennard Zinn: Landis's drivetrain, Hincapie's steerer, Thomson stem and chain-pin replacement: "After careful analysis of the broken parts, as well as replicating the failure in our test lab, it was a convergence of issues that combined to cause the failure, with the predominant factors being George's first crash earlier in the day and the brutal nature of Paris-Roubaix itself. "

Puhleeeez! A steering tube ought to survive a crash and continue riding on Rubaix.
