They must have thought I was nuts.
My crash on Friday wasn't super serious. I didn't hit my head. I didn't break anything. I have scabs across my "buns" and a huge bruise on my right hip. M-C (our soigneur) treated me soon enough afterwards that I didn't even have whiplash symptoms in my neck. But my back was still seized. My body was a bit shaky. I needed to be warm. So I decked myself out. It looked cool. Maybe it was not appropriate for the high-20 degree weather amongst the palm trees in Redlands. It made me feel good though.

I sat in the pack for the crit and planned to survive the day to be in the best shape possible for the final road race on Sunday. The girls did a great job. Joanie got 5th in the sprint finish despite a crash into the barriers during the race, and Denise Ramsden scored a nice prime sprint. I had a huge smile on my face when I heard her name over the loudspeakers! Go team!
