Wow as bad as it was that could have been a whole lot worse!
Glad you on the mend.

I hope so too. Knee injuries always take a while, but I'm sure that after 3 weeks I'll be capable if not 100%.

Sorry to learn of your incident and injuries Alan. I'm amazed and pleased to hear you didn't break anything, given the circumstances you describe. I wish you a speedy and full recovery, and hope to see you soon!

Alan,

You will ache for ages.
I did the same thing as Haydn, came off on an Alpine downhill course when the brakes boiled; luckily I had full armour and helmet on so nothing broken but boy oh boy the bruises; I was covered with them as I rolled down the mountain side for quite a distance. I couldn't sleep properly for 8 days.

Anyway, enough about me; get well soon and see you at Brands.

Ranjan.

Yeesh! Doesn't sound like a fun way to end your day. Glad it wasn't worse and hope the lingering issues clear up soon enough

..and I thought my accident sounded bad! Some armour would have been useful, although I took very little damage to my body - just a lot everywhere else. I was only wearing a single very lightweight layer and some fingerless cycling gloves. The back of my hands and my knuckles were shredded even with them being covered. I was wearing sunglasses and managed to snap the frame just next to my eye, which made a mess of the skin underneath. It's looking much better now that the graze and black eye has gone, but i expect a few small scars from that one!

For the first week I had to sleep in the one possible position that avoided putting bodyweight on the worst areas. Although I need to take a few pain killers for my knee, I'm actually sleeping pretty well now. I'm even going to bed earlier as it's more comfortable than staying up. Yes my limbs are still covered in scabs and bruises, but in a few more days, I'll finally be able to stop the daily redressing of the worst wounds. Other than the knee, nothing else hurts.

Thanks to everyone for the warm messages. It's been a tough week, with my daughter also having been in hospital for 5 days with a kidney infection. Hopefully see many of you at Brands next week.

If you need a hand with anything let me know. I'm not far and travel to Benson twice a day to take Sarah to work.

I made the mistake of making that offer after a friend crashed his bike at Brands, "doing a hundred and plenty" :roll:

Turns out that he did need a hand as he'd broken his collarbone, and lower right arm, and was right handed which meant that he couldn't... :shock:

Without going into details lets just say that I was very relieved that he got back with his girlfriend and she was happy to play nurse. :)


Take it easy Alan.

Have you had the "We hear you've had an accident" ambulance-chaser calls yet?
