So, after a great weekend of racing my first cat 2/3 race, where on Saturday after "testicle surfing" the start as Crusty put it and fighting my way back to 20th. Followed by Sunday, where I had a good start and finished 5th. To the fact that we hung with some pros for most of the weekend and had a great time with the MWI crew. It all came crashing down, literally.
My personal title sponsor and I were out for a nice fall evening ride, when about a mile from home, the craptastic Oak Leaf Trail Road took us out. Mo, being the animal that she is, was sprinting past me on a short up hill after a fast down hill. And then, down goes Mo, taking me out as well. We think her front wheel got caught in a rut in the fine roads of Milwaukee! Mo's helmet is smashed in the back, bikes slightly mangled and with less skin than I started the day with, we are all just fine. Minus Mo's concussion and our aches and pains.
Won't stop me from racing, or training for that matter, as I was back on the horse tonight when I got home from work.
