    Thanks everyone (CHEESE ALERT!)

    I'm sitting here typing with one hand, the busted collarbone hurts, and my mind is still feeling as quick as a steel tarp from the concussion. In short, I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself and somewhat frustrated that I don't know when I'll be able to get back on the bike.

    At the same time, though, if I never race again (but I will, mind you) it will still have been worth it. If racers are elitist I certainly haven't seen it. Everyone I've met in real life and on the forum has been extremely approachable and helpful. I've learned a ton from the folks on this board. I won't name names for fear of forgetting someone, but if you're reading this and you've ever posted a race report or provided an answer to a racing-related question then chances are I've learned something from you.

    And maybe it's just the drugs talking, but I thank you for that.

    zimbo-

    Hope you heal up quickly, as I said when I first found out about the collarbone. I agree, pretty much everybody on the racing forum has been very cool. It's a good little community. See you out there...

    Agreed - I've missed a bunch of races this season that I was registered for. Last weekend I was warming up before a race and several folks on different teams and even different categories approached me and asked if I've been OK (they mentioned seeing my name on the pre-reg list, but not seeing me at the start line). I went home and told my wife, what a good bunch of people race bikes.

    Steve I am sure you will be racing in no time. I look forward to reading your future race report.

    Heal up,
    Richard

    No worries. You can just blame your loss of memory on your concussion.

    Sorry to hear about your crash, though. Heal up quick and get back on the bike as soon as you safely can.

    I also have to give a big +1,000,000 to the group hug here.

    When my frame broke there was support coming from everywhere. People PM'ing me all over the place offering loaner bikes, selling frames for cheap, calling sponsors to find me a deal, etc. It really was amazingly cool to get all of that support to get me back up and racing in a hurry.

    You guys (and gals) rock.
