    What a strange breakage!
    It's similar to lacerated fibers.
    Tell something.

      Yes, it's a strange breakage.  
      Before the breakage I heard creaking noises when cycling uphill.  
      First came the sounds only, when I pressed the left pedal. A little bit later it creaked too by pressing the right pedal. After 600 km of PBP I rode on a slightly sloping road with good cover. My speed was about about 50 km/h when it crashed and the rear wheel blocked. The right chain stay was broken!  
      As the result, the carbon-rear-wheel and the rear-derailleur were destroyed.  
      The frame material is carbon. On the foto you see the broken carbon fibers.

        It's very insulting!
        But you were the participant, Manfred, the main thing your foot was restored during the short period of time.
