Ok, here you go:
This sport is dangerous! So here I was, last race of the weekend on Sunday at Roebling Road (last CCS race). I was coming out of turn two, riding my line out toward the far outside of turn two to head down the straight. This was lap five, when the experts usually pass my green-shirted novice butt. Most of the experts had gotten around me going into turn one. This expert, was trying to pass me on the outside of turn two.
When he got next to me, he slipped off the outside of the road, and got into the dirt. I began slowing a bit and moving further to the inside (we were now just on the straight headed to three). I couldn't move over much, cause there was another bike on my right. I figured he was going to come back onto the concrete and hit me. He made it back onto the concrete, slightly ahead of me by this time. He looked stable, I sighed with relief. Then...his bike started to wobble....wobble, wobble. I tried to move over further right thinking this was bad. Then he lost it. I'm not sure where he went, but his bike went down, right in front of me, lying lengthwise across my imminent path, tires facing me. I'm preparing myself now for an Evil Knevil type jump, wondering not if, but how many bones I was going to break. Then, I hit his bike, and the most amazing thing ever happened. I didn't jump it, my bike didn't flip me...it, stuck...right between his front wheel and radiator. So now, I'm riding a two bike sled down the concrete, my bike still on two wheels, attached to his bike. I continued that way for probably 25 yards where I was headed off into the grass.
I hit the grass, where my fun ride ended (I actually had the thought that maybe I could just continue sledding this thing through the grass...yea, right ). I was tossed, somehow, from the bikes and rolled another 30 yards or so lengthwise through the grass.
Well...I'm, amazingly enough, alright. Bruised finger, slightly stiff shoulder. The bike? Needed a new muffler and a bunch of fiberglass patch :-/
I count myself as VERY lucky that I walked away from this. I'm not sure what happened to the expert. He got up, but they loaded him into the ambulance. At least it was his bike that I ended up hitting and not him.
Hows that for a fun story? :)
