Great to see so many awesome people before and after the race, such a good community.
Had a good time setting Stravas with Atikins on the warmup loop and busting skids and sick jumps on lap 1.
Once onto lap #2 Leandre, Mitch and I stayed at the front and we were working on breaking away. This theoretical breakaway may have included the Norco duo (McNeely and Lespy), in which case an Ontario double/double would have greated the visiting Leandre (who is a great guy and tough guy to beat!) .
BUT THEN , BLAMO, the below Video link happened.

Thanks to Kevin J. and the Odyssy Medical First Aid crew for the evacuation and first aid.
Thanks also the the Collingwood Marine hospital for a check today, I enjoyed quite timely service this morning. It looks like some strains in the shoulder that will keep me imobilized for a bit but no collarbone or concussion issues luckily.Hip and knees will heal as per usual. Face bruises will help impress females I am sure.
Super happy with all the Smart Athletes racing at Ocup #1 and Whiskey 50 2013. Many solid results and PBs and great results for first time experts/higher classed riders. Also cool to see Momma Sue Haviland back out racing competitively. (PODIUM photo Pro women)
