collarbone

xray pic: you can see 2-3 pins and also the plate with screws.
3 days after surgery: super tender, still have iodine stains and will soon have a nice long scar.

BROKEN!!!

so much for mustache theory....i had a great stache and managed to have the worst crash ever last sunday (broken clavicle) ... actually it wasn't my fault, i got my wheel taken out at the koppenburg road race. but i was feeling really strong and was hanging top 5 in the cat3 for the half of the race i rode...so maybe the stache is still ok. its a really cool race 1/2 dirt and 1/2 road. we were on a slight downhill doing about 40mph, and someone swing wide....then next thing i knew i was sliding in the fetal position on my right side. the road rash could have been way worse (as i slid about 15-20 feet) but my shoulder took the impact and cracked the collarbone. this put a big dent in my training (6 weeks)...bummer, but oh well.

NEW WHIP!

soon the beard will be shaved and a mustache! will stay...its like EPO..but safe and legal. note the
sweet oakley razors...thanks to tim from oakley!
here is a pic of the new whip....specialized epic. pretty stoked about this one. this is actually the first new bike i have ever had. i've always bought demos/samples or used bikes until now. after a dozen or so rides on it i'm pretty sold on the rear suspension. also the phenom saddle is really good! i might put one on my road bike! Thanks jason and WRC!
