DL

The team took a pretty hard hit on Monday night this week. Chris was out for an easy spin on his road bike to get ready for the Ore to Shore this weekend, and he touched the floor....hard. Some stupid ass lady hit him from behind going 55 mph on Pleasantview road. He's in the hospital and will undergo surgery sometime today to fix his back. Fortunately, he can expect a full recovery (after what I can only imagine will be a good number of hours at Northern Michigan Sports Medicine for p/t). This whole accident has really thrown me for a loop on a few different levels, I can't imagine how hard and frustrating this must be for Chris. He'd been riding so well lately, and I'm sure he would have made a big jump up the ladder at the race this weekend. My legs have felt pretty average this week, and mentally I'm a little off my game. Last night riding with Scott I was constantly looking over my shoulder for cars (sometimes even in the woods). I'm still feeling pretty good about the race, but we'll just have to wait and see what Saturday brings. Everyone have a good thought for Chris today, and be careful out there. Over and out.

Good thing I read the blog. I didn't know he was scheduled for surgery.
Good Thoughts!
