Dang @neversummer that sucks! At least you summited the peak--is that South Arapaho?
Think it, be it.

@mclaincausey either south or north I think. We started at Long Lake, went up Apache’s east ledges, and then northwestish to Mount George. The primary objective was Iroquois, which isn’t too hard itself, but with no easy approach...

It’s not ranked, but was an IPW finisher for 2/3 of our group, including myself. Didn’t take much to convince me to go on!

@mclaincausey thank you! Fortunate it wasn’t more serious. If I do ever get to ride in a helicopter, I hope it’s on my terms!

Bummer @neversummer!  I feel your pain.  I broke my scaphoid in my left hand about a month ago in a bike race.  Really sucks not being able to ride outside the last nice days of the year. 

It could have been worst though...  My wife works in medicine and saw a guy the day after my crash who crashed going slightly slower than me and he broke his collarbone, 7 ribs, and had a collapsed lung.

@BloodnThunder True. Both of us were lucky to essentially walk away. I follow you on strava, glad to see you are back on the trainer, though you’re also right that it would be better to be outside. I know it’s replaceable/repairable but sounds like your bike has been injured a few times this year too. Ouch$$$$!
I always worry about my wife when she’s racing, crits in particular. That said, all of my worst cycling crashes have been on mountain bike and caused by myself.

@neversummer that's probably the best thing about the most recent crash....  Virtually zero damage to the bike outside of a scrape on the shifter and seat.  First thing I did after the crash was pop up and check to make sure the frame was ok as I had just gotten it custom painted a few weeks prior.  Thankfully not a scratch.  The previous frame....  Not so lucky in it's crash.  Crits can be pretty intense but they're super fun.

That's the brutal thing about MT biking.  If you're pushing yourself or just not paying attention the odds of crashing are way higher than road biking.

Either way when you wake up in the morning, you’d better be Running.

@BloodnThunder True, a few years ago when I was mtbing a lot more, I broke 3 helmets in less than a year. It’s taken some time to get back and I am definitely more tentative now. The last one of those was so bad that I considered quitting. Glad I didn’t though. It’s a lot of fun!

I know a few people who gave up road racing for the same reason.  One bad crash just caused a mental barrier to be built they can't seem to get through or they have a come to Jesus moment and realize the risk is not worth it to them anymore....  I'm hoping I don't have a bad enough crash I get to that point.

Every morning I wake up and know that I just need to be a tad quicker than the slowest gazelle....

That sucks @neversummer:'(

As for me, I'm 2.5 weeks out from Chicago. I think I'll be ready for a PR. Just have to execute on race day!

Woot! I’ll be out there. Will you be the guy Rupp and Farah are chasing?
