Can't Catch A Break

Some public service announcements

I've removed the original post. It was posted as soon as I got home, and definitely does not represent how I feel.

Guilty parties shouldn't point fingers.

I hope everyone heals up fast.

I've got a PSA for myself: Goal #1 in bike racing is the safety of all of the riders.

  • Bloody wicked. Ugly ugly ugly.

    Hope all is okay.

    Don't watch the Youtube video. :^]

  • Was that "dazzlepants" who t-boned the guy in the video who is just standing up?

    Maybe "dazzlepants" should have kept his head up too, because dazzlepants wasn't anywhere near the money.

  • It was. I was neither being clearheaded at the end of that race, nor when I posted this. It all happened in a split second, and at that moment, my only goal was getting to the line.

    I apologize to the guy I hit. At this point, I'm not sure if I could have avoided a collision, but I certainly could have reduced the damage.

    Again, I apologize. If you check my next entry, which was posted a few hours later, you'll see my shift in attitude. I'll edit this post to reflect that as well.

    I hope everyone will be ok.

  • We've all been there and I'd be a hypocrite to pretend that I haven't lost my temper. Hope you're OK too.

  • The dude in yellow has been at the past two races and seems to be fine. He even appears thrilled to have been made famous on YouTube.

  • Thanks for the update. Glad to hear he's doing well. I still have some pain in my back. At this point, I'm done reflecting, and am looking forward to more racing. I hope to be able to resume racing on Thursday.
