Was it the wheel-shoe contact on the left leading to a crash?

Nope- look at the guy in white and black behind the Clif-Bar rider (Clif-Bar is second from right of image). Not quite the same trajectory as all the other guys...

on their website, that team posted the picture, with a close up. Caption afterward says "No broken bones"- so it went better than it could have.

Yeah, Kerry is fine. Someone tried to squeeze between him and the railing. There was about 6" of space. I missed the crash by about half a foot.

Unfortunately for Kerry he missed the entire Crossroads series. His form was on too.

He tore some tendons.

Yeah, I talked to him at one of the races later that week. Man, he can't buy a break when it comes to injuries from racing.

East Hartford training races at Rentschler Field. Normally a safe race. Low key, they don't even score the finish really.

I tried fixing up that guy in the foreground with the road rash and blood, and he just walked away from me when I was getting stuff out of the first aid kit.

Tough mofo.

I gave his teammate a few bandages and called it a day.

Dude is freaking TOUGH.

Heal fast aki...
