Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Since it has only been five and a half weeks since I broke it, it definitely hurt more than a little. I also hit my left knee when I went down. As I jumped back on my bike and tried to pedal my left knee wouldn't turn the pedals. It felt like a charlie horse that took at least five minutes to loosen up. Unfortunately, it left me pedaling with 70 percent of my right leg for the rest of the stage, which still had another 115 miles of hard racing to go.
