I crashed in Central Park during a race MANY years ago. First time I went down hard and the road rash/hair/blood clean up made for a very unpleasant experience after arriving back home in Teaneck. Once healed I shaved arms and legs and it felt weird but one thing for sure is that non hairy arms/legs makes for very easy and less painful cleaning after doing down. Never shaved for any of my triathlons and I should have for the first REV3 70.3 in Venice. Came to the round-about by Manasota Beach and according to my Garmin went from 25.3mph to 0 pretty fast when I lost the rear at the 15 mile mark. Big time bleeding from that point on until after the 13.1 at which point I was escorted to the medical tent for a half hour of medical attention to be cleaned up--OUCH!!!!!--and monitoring.
