Yesterday Pete was going full bore at the goal to defend an against an attack. Slammed on his brake, he heard a PING(which was his cable snapping), he crashed his tire straight into our heavy metal goals, he was thrown over his bars and cracked his head on the ground. Broke a huge piece right off the temple area of his helmet.
If he wasn’t wearing his helmet he’d probably be in the hospital right now but instead he was able to laugh it off and coast his fucked up bike home to his family with nothing more than a sprained wrist.
Please consider wearing a helmet if you don’t now. No matter how great of a cyclist you are there is always mechanical failure to worry about.
He hit the goal so hard that he bent his steel fork backwards into a negative rake.
UPDATE: Pete ended up with two broken bones in his hand. Here’s wishing a quick and easy healing process.
