    Sorry to hear about your crash.
    How did it happen?

    Side note: The other night I put some new pedals on my MTB. And silly me I took it out for a spin in total darkness (circular drivaway). I crashed 2 times as it was totally dark (usually some light). I will not do that again!

    i'm actually not sure. I don't really remember......

    I remember a little instability and then I was on the ground trying to think straight. I limped over to a gas station and didn't even remember calling my wife. The clerk was extremely helpful.....loaded my bike in the van, I remember that.

    On another note, I thought I hurt bad last night......

    My wife had to help me out of bed this morning....I was so stiff I couldn't move. I'm currently having to use one of her canes to move around the house. I also pulled a muscle in my groin on the hit or somethig. all i know is I was somewhere north of 25MPH when I went down, I was in a push phase.....trying to max the HR.

    Well, I certainly achieved that....

    OW Tom!

    I do indeed feel your pain! It was Specialized that mailed me a 20% off coupon, sorry charlie. I imagine Bell might do something similar. I just emailed customer service on their web page. I told them I bounced my coconut off the curb and without their helmet I'd be lying in a bed at the VA. Not a lie!

    Feel better Tom!

    Ouch!

    I guess that is how crashes go? One second riding, next on the ground in pain.

    Here's to a speedy recovery!

    Hope you recover quickly! I hope the memory laps is due to the event happening so quickly... otherwise you may want to get checked out by a Dr. to see if you rattled your brain a bit too hard, even with a helmet.

    No signs of concussion this morning. It's very likely traumatic blockage going on, and not brain swelling. No headache, believe it or not, no other symptoms of concussion. The helmet sure did it's job.....

    Glad you're OK, Tom. There must have been something in the water yesterday.

    I was doing a couple cool down laps after my race yesterday and spotted Cheri walking on the road back to where our truck was parked...so I came up behind her to give her a pat as I road by...slowly. Well she must have heard me and stopped to turn around, causing me to brake and swerve to avoid her...I hit the curb and teetered for a few seconds trying to unclip, before falling down and going boom. Perfectly funny end to a perfectly funny race!

    Yeah, the same shoulder. Not the rotator cuff though at least, it's actually in the meat of the trapezoid muscle and along the top of my shoulder in the muscle. DEEP, deep bruising. Same with the hip. Got an0ther look at the helmet this morning.....sure glad i had it on..The helmet is a write off. Better that than the skull!!!! Given the impact point, etc, the ER Dr told me that without it, I'd likely be either dead or critical from a skull fracture and traumatic brain injury. Cycling IS a dangerous sport, yeah, but man I love it!

    Niel F, Tom, I hope you all heal quickly so you can get back on your horses. There is this saying that things always happen in threes. So the rest of you Clydes be careful. Unless there is a third out there we didn't hear about yet.

    Sorry to hear about the crash Tom. If you trust them and know one that is good try the chiropractor. I had injured my hip in a low speed crash and he helped jump start the healing process.
