$300. Um, no. I'll lose the weight. That should get me back to 2.FAT W/kg and I might make it up a small hill

I agree, wouldn't be cheating. Why take a knife to a gun fight? Do you get an award for only having a 25 on the back but cross training up the hill?

Oh man, just picked up a shipment of Caymus wine and mmmmmm. My checkbook hurts (it's crying actually) but my tastebuds are forever grateful.

Welll I guess its a blessing BWR didn't take my money at the cut off time. Thursday after work I tried to get some extra miles in. Was riding through Del mar, I was hit by a car. Training for this ride offically end as I will spend time to to do regular life long things.... like pick up and hold my child and breathe without chest pains.

OK, glad you're able to log on and type, and thanks for answering the MOST important question - is your bike alright.

Let's assume the driver is at fault and that you're not going to go posting a ton of ameliorating details on any message board that her insurance company's lawyers can read but... you only think there are no damages to the frame. Let me phrase it for you this way: put an ad on craigs list for your bike (only crashed once, no damage) and tell me what you think you'll get for it. Carbon frames that have been crashed are worth zero. Also of note, if you have any damage later on that is potentially warranty-able, and they determine you crashed your frame, it's worth zero and you'll get no warranty.

I cracked one or two ribs in a mountain bike accident oh, 15 years ago when I was your age. Nyuk. You're in for some sleepless nights and heaven help you if you develop a cough. And mine were just cracked. And you have other busted bits to go on top.

How long does the doc think he'll have you out of commission?

jsigone, Heal well, I've broken a few bones and know how long it takes to heal so you can get back riding again. Broke my pelvis in 3 different spots, 3 broken ribs, slip disc, broken hand, back in 2005 on my Kawi during a 2 day race school, a year off healing before being able to return back to work. Then fractured my left shoulder on my mountain bike in 2012 and just now got back into riding. Yes, much down time, but let your body tell you when it is time to get back on the bike. Which lovely bike were you on?

Heal well, Luv your post and pictures,
Mike

Glad you are doing well enough to type.
My advice, and I'm no lawyer, would be to not post about it. Let the lawyers agrue fault etc. The public space is no place for that.

Another piece of advice would be to have a spreadsheet that documents every penny that is spent in healthcare, missed pay, damages etc. Makes ti easy to not forget that one medical bill that you'll be looking for 3 years down the road when the insurance company might want to make an offer.

Your bike is NOT alright. Assumptions are the mother of all * ups however.... Its carbon. You can't tell if the bike is alright or not so you have to assume the worst and it's done for. Take it to a bike shop and get them to check it and if they say it's fine get the bike from them and run away... very fast. You can't x-ray it to determine if it's cracked.

Absolutely this!
Don't speak to the drivers insurance company either. That's what lawyers do.

Damn. Sorry to hear that (just read this now). I live in Carmel Valley near by. Where did it happen in Del Mar, and how?

Did you suffer any injuries that require an orthopod? If so, PM me, I've got a great guy here in town, will give you his contact info. Also have a great PT guy in case you're in need of rehabbing the injury with some assistance.

Just tried to PM you back, but my post count has to be 50 first, and I'm new here.

Sorry to hear about the accident, and if you need a second opinion from a top guy in SD, I go to Dr. David Hackley at Torrey Pines Orthopaedic and Scripps: Scripps Health - David Hackley - La Jolla - Orthopedics

He and other Doc's in the practice treat pro athletes and are very highly regarded in the medical community down here.

Heal well, and hopefully we'll get to meet sometime.

I was going to photograph the BWR event, but had a camping trip with my daughter and her friends scheduled for the same weekend, so couldn't come. I couldn't ride that event, I'm only riding 30-50-milers generally in training. It'll take me some time before I can ride 100+...and enjoy it.

I got different ortho from Scripps TP

I was on target for 600+ miles for April or roughly had 180 mile by the 10th when this happened. Who know how long it will take to mend and get back up to that level

LMAO, that's an epic ride title!

His average ... That was my average speed on the decidedly flat tour de palm springs... hot damn. I don't know what the big deal is anyway, it only looks like there were two little climbs. 2500 feet? C'mon now. What kind of "new math" did you guys have to do to get it to add up to 11k anyway. I smell a rat.

Welcome to the board, Super D.

Welcome to the board, Super D.
those are the worst kinda of 10k ft rides. Not one big mt to climb where you can settle in a pace for hours, but just steep lil patches of dirt or pavement over n over n over again. Plus grand fondo style with timer chips so there are guys racing for it including local Pros and flown in Pros, groups of shattered souls and legs left in their wake. Not to mention the waffle buffet b4 the ride. (how many waffles can one fit in his pockets for the road) his RR says he only got one flat running 28c tubeless (hutches) on his Domane. He got it about 30 miles from the end and on a pavement section of all things
