It was only a matter of time, I started racing last spring (learned tons by lurking on this forum and posting questions here and there, you guys are great), upgraded to Cat-4 to start this year, and amazingly things clicked a bit and earned my last upgrade points for Cat-3 a couple weeks ago.
As I was driving to yesterday's crit I thought to myself that I've finally crossed the mental threshold and my main thoughts when getting ready to race involve figuring out how I'm going to do well versus worrying about crashing or any other stupid thing.
Well, my front tire flatted right as I went into a hard corner 20 minutes in and I was sliding on pavement before I even had time to think. Wasn't super fun, but I'm fine. Some nasty road rash on the shoulder and hip...so brings me to the question. Reading online, there are a million theories...open to air, open to air with ointment, sealed with Tegaderm, etc, sealed with non-stick bandage.
I know I could search and I have, but anyone care to give experience as to what method has worked best to clear this stuff up the quickest/easiest?
