Tyler + Cycling Race Crash = Trip To InstaCare

Yesterday Tyler participated in the first cycling race of the season, appropriately named "Hell Of The North" In the final stretch to the finish line, Tyler was cut off by another rider and he skidded across the road at 30 miles per hour. He has road rash all down the right side of his body, he had to have two stitches in his elbow, but the worst, pain wise for his is a separated shoulder. He is just upset that he was in good contention to make top ten, and of course his bike. Luckily it was his training bike, he took that one because at one point they are on gravel and didn't want to scratch up his "real" bike. Overall he came through ok, his next race is the 26th so hopefully he will be able to participate.

Oh my goodness! Poor Tyler! I hope he's doing ok. I can't believe that other racer. Hopefully he'll be able to race next time and get it though! Poor guy!

You are a MUCH better woman than I am. My "rule" with the DH is: If you are injured during your "extracurricular" activities, don't complain to me. The rule evolved after MANY softball injuries that I heard about for MONTHS. I guess if it required the ER, I would take him. You're a great wife. ***I just re-read this and I sound so horrible and unempathetic..hmmmmm.
