Phil Gaimon has posted his latest video in his 'Worst Retirement Ever' series, as the American former Cannondale-Drapac pro attempts to claim high-profile Strava KOMs... and with an unexpected ending.
In this edition, Gaimon attempts to claim the 'Flagstaff from Gregory Canyon' Strava segment in Boulder Colorado, USA.
He has tried to better Levi Leipheimer's current KOM time before, but put in a concerted effort this time in an attempt to better Leipheimer's mark of 11 minutes and 11 seconds, which was set during the US Pro Challenge stage race in 2012.
The filming of Gaimon's attempt is accompanied by real-time read-outs of his speed and power output, which you can also view via his effort on Strava dated June 19 2017.
Does he take the KOM? And what exactly happened to Gaimon when he attempted to unzip his skinsuit at the end of the ride?
We'll let you watch to find out...
