Retarded owner theory - The owner is national level rider (podiumed a few times) who has raced for 30+ years. So we can discount that.
Just because he has raced for 30 years and is national level doesn't he is mechanically competent.
Just as lots of fast riders know their way around the bike, many (fast) riders have trouble lubing their chain or changing a flat.
sure, fair point, but his 30+ years would have helped keeping upright in this situation, I know the riders around him where pleased it was him.
and knowing him, he is pretty handy around a bike.
