i'll keep it brief as i am pretty bummed out about it...
first laps went well, just as i was catching onto the main group i got chopped and taken down. levers turned, i got back trying to salvage what i could.
3 or 4 laps later, i wash myself out super hard whacking my right knee about as hard as one possibly could right into my bars - so hard i nearly puked right there. barely able to limp off the course, i laid down for about 4 minutes before i could actually stand on it.
i bagged it at that point - was so far back that i wasn't going to catch on and with nationals a few weeks out it seemed kind of silly to keep pedaling just to finish and then end up doing more damage then good.
card ended up taking the win - he looked super strong. gerry came in 4th after winning his masters race earlier in the day.
so today i am taking the day off and trying to keep off the knee.
next up - freddie fu/speedgoat cross race this sunday in the 'burgh.
