Finally did it .....

After just over 9000km of training and racing I had my 1st crash today. 20kph heading up a hill, back wheel slipped sideways and before I knew it i was lieing on the road. Scratched my new pedals and shoes I just purchased today.

Sorry for the crash, but better to crash going up a hill than down...

Sorry to hear... I know the feeling just had my first real crash a few weeks ago. Sounds like you fared better than me!

Hey at least you didn't crash on your first ride like me, or second like my brother...

Hmm...now it's out of the way! Here's to 10000k without another one!

By the way, 20kph is way better to go down at then 50kph and, as said above, better uphill than down.
