Sandy Springs crash, videos, and race report

May 9, 2011 at 6:05 pm 2 comments

Summary – racing well, but missed break which lapped the field. I was working hard to stay at the front with 2 laps to go when my front wheel started to slide out on the fast downhill turn #3. I straightened up to stop the slideout, but that meant that I wasn’t going to be able to finish making the turn at 32+ mph. I ended up slamming into the barriers shoulder first at 32.3 mph according to my iBike. Here’s the same explanation in video form at the hospital:

I am incredibly sore on both sides and the back of my neck. Here is a picture showing the bruising and swelling around my neck and where the helmet straps cut into the skin. Same thing on the other side of my neck. Ouch.

Western lake in the far, thankfully I had my light. Point Washington state forest. Point Washington state forest greenway trail ... Awesome except for a few of these guys. I ran directly into this one, and I threw him off but he landed on my Garmin and crawled here.
