It was a sharp turn on a descend.

I had a little over 100 psi on the rear. The blowout was a pretty loud pop and thankfully I was able gain control and just roll down the road and stop. I was on my C59 Italia and the bike was the first thing that crossed my mind when I heard the pop. This fall could have shredded me pretty good but I was lucky to gain control. I would have been equally pissed if I crashed the Saronni, but the C59 Italia would have hurt more... LOL.
