Both crashes were not my fault first of all. Both cases were lapped wheel incidents; guy went down in front of me and I over him. Kinda ironic i might add, identical crashes, same sore spots and road rash. Elbow, shoulder than hip in that order. After the first wreck, which was in a crit, most people say you get really gunshy and you are waaayyy more cautious. I found that it made me a bit more fearless, because the crash really didn't hurt that bad even though I was taken away in an ambulance and had 10 x-rays in the emergency room. I really found myself taking more chances riding a lot more aggressive. It paid off, the very next race I got on the podium. I'm glad I'm not on a carbon frame cause I really like crits and I'm looking forward to plenty more crashes not in a good way. Anyone experience this type of phenomena!
