 That's definitely normal. Maybe check any of your bike steerer tubes

 @christinachappetta: I think the person above was referring to what looks like a crack in the head tube on rider’s left of the headtube and not the steerer tube opening.

 @christinachappetta: Not the steerer tube. look at lower right bottom of head tube. looks like a giant hole in the carbon

 I would have personally LOVED to bring a photographer along as well for this event, but with only myself and 1 filmer here it's too hectic to do it all AND release videos in a timely manner. Photo articles hopefully to come from the event sponsors :-)
