Paddy - I came off my bike descending the Horsehoe Pass, broke three ribs and my collar bone and ruptured two shoulder ligaments, also had a pneumothorax so had to wait seven weeks for an operation to replace ligaments and remove fragment of collar bone (it was right at the distal end and too small to successfully reattach). Operation was on 22nd September, still stuck in a poly sling 24/7 and waiting to find out how much strength and movement I'm going to be able to regain.
You're spending a lot of time in your car at the moment Alehouse.
Had to pull up due to a hamstring strain. Was in third and comfortable enough... eyeing second when strain came on. Decided it was better to stop rather than push a worse injury. Off on my holiers next week!!!
LMH - reaction not too bad. If i can find out a way to fit in the training I think I'll have a bash and finally decide a few months out. I have my eye on one in Ireland that's low key, but with a tough cycle that can be entered late. We'll see.......... I want something to challenge me as i'm 50 next year.
