Accidents will happen

I can't believe they cut my jersey

On Wednesday April 26th, the iFolder bike team went out for our normal lunchtime training ride. It just happened to be the first day I had my Garmin Forerunner so I have all of the details of the ride. After 17.9 miles we were on our way back and Brady had just pulled off to the back of the pace line (I was in front of him). We came to some railroad tracks and I crossed them faster than normal and heard a hard smash and thought "Wow, Brady went over that track harder than I have ever heard". I then heard Brady yell so I looked back and only saw his wheels. I stopped and ran back and Brady was not getting up.

I'll spare you the details of everything after that, but as you can see, Brady was taken to the hospital and it turns out he broke his collar bone. I was paniced I had done something to cause his fall (being the new rider) but he assures me he was about ten feet off my wheel when it happened.

If you click on the map of the ride, you can import the ride data into Google Earth and see right where the tracks are and the abrupt end to our lunch training ride. Brady is still at home recovering and we all wish him well. I went over to his house yesterday and helped him take care of some very important business... I got him all signed up for the 2006 LOTOJA Classic! He is doing well and knowing Brady, he will be hacking and back on his bike soon.

Get well Brady, we need your hacking skills on iFolder, your legs on our rides, and we miss you here at work!
