hit some gravel while avoiding somone walking on the road... maybe doing 30mph. did maui w / a broken arm 2 yrs ago so road rash won't be a huge obstacle... just have a mega taper in training for a few days!

Ouch, i hope you'll recover fast.
Bike parts are just parts, but you can't buy health. Thats the most important thing!

Camelfred - Nice to meet you. But damn you euro guys are nuts. Riding 7 miles to the start, climbing 36 miles, did you ride down and back to Kahului?... At least it looked like a tailwind from Paia to Kahului! My ride didn't go to well, still suffering post-crash, but I guess I'll have to be happy with 19th until 2008!

That reminds me of the one thing I don't miss about Hawaii - those volcanic aggregates in the roads are very efficient skin removal machines if you go down.

Man, Mike screws up his self that badly and still manages a 19th. How's the skin growth going?

hey dr.j .. skin is growing back nicely... just about all healed up, at least externally. not quite 100% but at least the oozing part is over! That grew old rather quickly.

Here's a photo from earlier in the race when things were going well.

Yup, that's me at the nose of the lead pack, Chris Lieto (3x ironman winner) just behind, and a few others in tow, including 3 guys from amd/disco channel masters team.
