So we’re riding up this stupid never-ending grade that doesn’t have much going for it, heading towards the final summit of today’s stage, when this guy comes flying around the corner way over in my lane, moving too fast to miss me. Slams HARD into my left shoulder, knocking me to the ground. Helmet took most of it but still got a bruised lip, cheek, knuckles, thigh… But unlike the other guy, I can still ride. Actually he can too, but in an ambulance. Pretty sure he at least separated his shoulder, so Lisa/Hill Slug, if you’re reading this, no, my bone density isn’t so low that I can’t take a hit and keep on going!
And no, darn it, I wasn’t shooting video when it happened.
