At least your tires are on 100%. That lever looks a bit crooked though. I hope you heal quick, remember the tip about the tendon (don't let anyone bend the finger, you hold the base of the finger and you bend the knuckle of the affected tendon/joint using the muscle of the finger), and I have that stem in the car.
I guess my poison ivy isn't a big deal compared to hitting the deck.

It was a right turn, and I high sided.
Shovelhd, even though we can't see your face, that photo definitely has more suffering in it than any of these lamer hill climb grimace photos!
No good Shovel. Damn. Glad it wasn't worse.
Oof. Pulled groins can be rough. I pulled mine when I was in college. I was on crutches for a week. I couldn't put any weight on my leg. When I did, it felt like I was getting kicked in the crotch.
Not exactly a race, but I did a local large charity century ride last Saturday where they brought in Levi Leipheimer as the special guest. Surprisingly after about 30 miles he picked up the pace and by mile 50 there were only three of us left with him. Really cool guy and definitely still very strong. Pic by Al Wagner.
This one is from Wednesday's Music City crits - Cat 1/2/3 race. Finished 9th overall and second in the 3s. First top ten against 1s and 2s. Photo by Chris Korbey.
Cat 2 o-meter: 22/30 points
Ugh. The report was bad enough but the pic looks worse. Your legs look tan and great even in the crash pic.

cornering on the hoods and rotating in the 2nd group. even bent in half I give too much draft.
CCCX 1/2/3's - this is the winning break.
That's not me off the front of it, or even in the break... I'm one of the tiny smudges off the back of it!! They were still mad at me for not helping chase down my own teammate, so were gapping/attacking me and another guy.
Guy off the front even brake-checked us at one point! Sent other guy into the gravel.
But he & I worked together and caught up.
Here I am making my "this isn't the fun part of racing" face:
