Also "raced" The RH series this weekend.
10" into the scratch (turn1) a fellow clipped a pedal, taking down a few of us. Chopped up my ear and banged up my shoulder (no doctor visit yet... hoping it's not too bad) took a little time to collect myself / bandage up / make sure the bike was sound... back in the win&out... took it pretty easy towards the back as I wasn't 100% sure of my shoulder, took a long flyer/solo tt for 4th. Still a bit of sketchy riding happening (3/4 race) in the points race... put a big effort in for the prime, then sat up and pulled out.

Saturday couldn't get into aero position for the timed events. Arm held out ok for regular drops though. Did a (mediocre - didn't really want to push my luck) flying 200 and sat out the match sprints since it would have meant some of us had to do a 3 man. (odd number)

Afterwards myself and @topflightpro were going to do a match for fun... he rolled his tire in t3 and unfortunately broke his clavicle (and maybe more?) - keep him in your thoughts :/

Not a great weekend unfortunately
Of course we know each other. I'm infamous for being the least well liked draft in the South East!

You guys didn't know you knew each other?

Tobukog is on the same team as the guy who pusuits in the funny helmet.

Oh, and yeah, i broke some ribs too. Not sure which hurts more. If I don't move, the shoulder isn't too bad.

Its really frustrating though, since Nationals is only two weeks away and now I have to cancel all my plans. I also will need new bars and a saddle.

somehow the scramble of letters that make up his handle went over my head...

That sucks man, I know how fun both of those breaks are to deal with. Never a good time for it, but this close to Nats is also a huge bummer.

Take some time and heal, and then regroup for next year. It's a bummer and I know that you've been focused on the shorter events -- even forgoing the longer mass start stuff. I've been at this for a long time -- there'll be more chances. And you did win the match sprints -- savor the feeling and build on it!
