Very dissaponted with myself. Finishing up my ride today and I hit the deck. Worst part, the deck was not nice smooth pavement...it was chip seal.
I had just finished a nasty little climb (city park) and was just begining the descent. I was holding my base bar beneath the elbow pads which were very sweaty from the climb. I hit a pot hole and my hands flew off the bar and I went down. My palm took most of fall.
Nothing too brutal and nasty. Was a little bummed since it looked nasty when I was on site of fall. Once washed off it was very minor. Probably a good thing since I race in a week. It did hurt..a lot remembering the feeling of my palm absorbing/sliding the fall on chip seal. Thank god nobody was around to see it.
