hi there idiot boy, meet mr. curb

me and another boy off the front in the crit today. 50/50 chance at the win is pretty good odds in my book.

riding comfortably, gap growing, cohesive work between the two.


CLIP ... skid ... BANG!
-

instant karma is a bitch, ya'll.


busted body, busted bike ... and then my brudda jeffe did a sympathy slide to join me in the dunce's corner.

we're like ... boyfriends n' stuff.

dr-nitro said...

You busted your new ride? Ouch.

Nothing more serious on you than some bumps bruises or scratches, I hope.

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

i needed you out there dragging the field around and keeping me from being off the front, nick.

hips and right wrist will prolly get x-rayed tomorrow ... or, i might just decide i can't be bothered.

i don't deal well with injuries.

ignore the pain ... sometimes it can bite you in the coccyx.

thanks kitty people!

dr-nitro said...

Well, my fight for the bear jersey happens down here with the socal cycling sluts.

Coming down this way to do laps around my town in a coupla weeks, body permitting?

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

i think i have to, regrettably, miss the big crit down in SLO-town.

kickin' myself.


even if i went down there, i'd be on the mic and not on the tarmac.

but, i've got races to do up in the NorCal ... so, will miss out.

you and Dirk tear that shit up, yo.

teamnolan said...

I hope you two heal quickly... we need your enthusiasm at the track! Rest up.

Merkeley Bike said...

Ouch!! Big time bummer. Hope you and pab heal fast.

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

Don't you EVER do that again

at least not right in front of me.

And I was speechless when I learned Jeffe crashed too.

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

damn, that just makes you look crazy...

the above post was me, vb

Kimberly (aka. DrKim) said...

hope you heal up quickly!!!!!!!!!! Get some R&R...

swiggco world said...

Ouch. I hope your injuries are minor. Bikes can be fixed. Ride dirt, it's softer. Cheers, swiggboss.

ow

ow ow ow

happy healings to both bashed bagboys, at least one of 'em knows a good doctor

hm, engineering project: airbag for cyclists? that deploys out of a flower-like device attached to back of helmet...

X Bunny said...

between having his left arm in a sling and being on some serious painkillers, jeffe is having more trouble than usual getting more of his food in his mouth than on his lap

xrays tomorrow--we'll get him fixed up

upon further inspection, the helmet and trek frame are not fixable

and sabine, i have no idea how you managed to make that long drive home--i think i'm going to have to stop 3 times to be able to stay awake to get us home tomorrow

kisses
we love you

Velo Bella said...

I slept a little on the way home. Somewhere between Stockton and Patterson.

I am so sorry to hear about Jeffe's crash.

I don't think Michael's bike survived either.

You know, Michael wasnt wearing glitter. I think I need to keep an emergency supply on hand...

We don't have the serious painkiilers at home, but the Gin and Tonics seem to be doing the trick.

Thank you for taking care of all of us.

X Bunny said...

i felt a little bad that i hadn't gotten to michael in time for glitter, but jeff did have some so i guess that's the end of the 'safety glitter' term....from now on it's just for looks

but i'll get you a bottle

i told jeff he had a choice between the painkillers and the tequila....today he picked the painkillers but tomorrow it may be tequila

PAB(a.k.a.CID) said...

i think we are getting too used to having banked turns.

or, perhaps we are just dunces.

stupid bike racing....

Anonymous said...

Does that mean the cocky wank in the photo won???

Shit.

Get well.

Gianni said...

Curbs suck.

Hope you both feel better soon.

chatterbox said...

Heal up fast Olaf and Pabcid! Sorry to hear about the bikes. More importantly, sorry to hear about the busted bodies. Take care, ya'll.

CyclistRick said...

Tough luck. Heal fast. Titanium plates in the right wrist are not as exciting as you would think. Hope the damage is all superficial.

lauren said...

uh oh! hope nothing's broken.

heal well and soon.

Mike said...

hate when friends crash, pabcid call if you need anything !

imike

AJM said...

At least no light poles were involved!!

Sorry to hear about yer crashes, get better soon.

Hey, it can always be worse, right?

PAB(a.k.a.CID) said...

ajm, whenever i start feeling even the slightest bit sorry for myself (and there seems to be plenty of time for that, as i can't seem to sleep), i just think about the horror you suffered through...

oh, and uh, can i borrow spongebob?

marscat said...

VB slept on the drive home? does that mean OV was driving?

hope you boys feel better soon.

velogirl said...

well, shoot! I hope you both feel better soon. no fun to read a race report like this....

Velo Bella said...

no, I was driving

good thing there is a starbucks in Patterson

willbmoto said...

O Boy, whata day!

Having been the Moto behind Mike when he went down was and is a tough one!Lotsa pain in that pavement!

Next race I hear a tire blow in the same area and wondered who was next. Came around the corner and there were the riders picking themselves out of the bushes and trees and Jeff on the pave.So glad there is a Dr. in the house.

My heart goes out to you guys,

Get Well and Be Well!

Will

bbElf (a.k.a. panda) said...

Damn. Hope you both heal up soon...

Nome Agusta said...

El Bummarino,
So you destroyed the frame before I got to see it?

I imagine is was blazing hot, that pavement gets a bit slippy. I remember doing a two wheel slide out of corner 2 in 04'. They had just repaved and it was over 100. That was the same year Billy Clark unweighted his wheel out of the last corner and got a close up view of the gutter.

WarrenG said...

Sorry to hear about the crashes and pain.

Last year in that race I hit a tiny stone or something and had a blow-out in my front tire going into the last turn. Left me with a separated AC joint-just 10 days before masters track nat's. :-( It's no fun for a sprinter to try sprinting at that level with only one arm.

Something for pain-as needed, and AmbienCR or Halcion for sleeping.

Anonymous said...

Dang! and I was going to make a trip out to the track this Friday to see Mr. Olaf do the NASCAR thing.

Get well soon.

WarrenG said...

Ah'd lock ta thank the whole crew for settin up mah back. The numer 36 Vicodin-Ambien-Jack Daniels back was runnin superfast all knat long and the Safeway boyz kept mah fuel topped off in the piit stops. I wuz doin' all ah could just to keep 'er off the wall in the sprints.

Phipps said...

I don't like curbs, I prefer crashing into hay bails. Heal fast! I hope to see you at Patterson!

Sufferin' P (a.k.a. peterpen) said...

You should have let me catch y'all when I tried to come across - a little fresh meat and you wouldn't have had to scrape the corners so hard. ;)
On the other hand, people were clipping pedals all day, no matter how fast we were going. Weird.

jAndy donka-donk said...

They really need to start making asss-fault a lot softer.....

dr-nitro said...

So, any news on whether you've joined Klodi's cracked coccyx club?

Taz said...

Heal up well Brothers. Since our B line will now have to take to the ice first Tony and I are postponing the weddings so we can train harder. Haven't okay'd with the women yet, but I'm sure they will understand. Shit, out comrades are down, there is no choice... ;)

Miller said...

Asphalt...karma's little debt collector....

fuji rider said...

MAYO test positive!!

Phipps said...

Bummer! I can't wait to see what Millar has to say.

jeninsb said...

Awwww :-(

Heal fast Olaf!

dr-nitro said...

Yeah, but from what I understand, the test for EPO is a relatively unreliable (relative to other tests that is). Just ask Marion Jones.

I do wonder, though, whether Millar will say anything about the team. He really has nothing to lose, since he is moving over to Slipstream. I liked what he had to say here about the whole doping topic.

PAB(a.k.a.CID) said...

taz, crackin me up as usual.

L. Christmas said...

shnykies! heal up quick man!

Velojuice said...

maybe this will ease the pain my brother, heal quick.
F&%king pro!

Lyne said...

ouch. Rest up, heal, take care.

banks said...

Hey, you and that punk ass bitch friend of yours heal up soon. Racings better with y'all round.

funkdaddy said...

wait, that looks like a left turn - shouldn't you be used to those by now?

perfect timing for your midsummer rest-up for 'cross.

heal fast, brotha.

the old bag said...

Bummer on the road rash...

...but I liked vb's description of you in the Rite Aid!

Heal quickly, and get back out there.
