Normally broken chainstays are the result of something a little more dangerous than a bunny hop, but Nick Teague need only a few mild trails and a short jump into the air to damage his bike enough to win this week’s Teva “Proof of Life” photo contest.
“While riding a pretty tame trail, I did an embarrassingly small bunny hop, and when I landed, SNAP!–the back end disappears from under me and I went skidding and sliding,” Teague said. “I thought I had snapped the axle, but when I dusted myself off and looked at the bike, I saw that both chainstays had snapped and the back end had twisted to horizontal, dragging my rear derailleur across the ground.”
Make sure to submit your photos by midnight on Friday for a chance to win a free pair of shoes next week. At the end of August one lucky contestant will win an autographed Jeff Lenosky Giant STP frameset and Teva prize pack. On top of all that, the grand prize winner will also win a $1000 cash prize.
