Apparently the cycling world has introduced some new technology called “disc brakes” that are causing quite the stir, but for all the wrong reasons.
During the Paris-Roubai, several crashes took place but that’s not the real story as crashes happen quite often in cycling.

That makes JPP getting his finger blown off look tame.
If you need to regain your composure, go for it.
