I just couldn’t leave it alone… I had to do one more lap on the way home from work. I was absolutely shelled after the afternoon ride but thought that I should take every opportunity to practice.
I managed to get up the hill where I broke my ribs last November… 50 meters later, brimming with confidence, I attempted the ‘rick garden’ section and fell badly: Landed hard on my right quad, and not-so hard on my right ribs (that I broke in November) and the bike landed on the inside of my right knee. The right calf is dead, knee has a lump the size of a golf ball and the ribs are tender. This MTB stuff is not compatible with my other goals. Fun though when it doesn’t hurt.
