Gnarliest Photo Contest

16 02 2010

There’s a Gnarliest Photo Contest going on over at Steve in a Speedo?! Gross!

My entry was close to making the top 10, according to an email I got from Steve: “The ones that BARELY MISSED the top 20 were Nathaniel S, Tyler R, Jen G, and Jessica F.  (And right now those 4 are thinking “If I didn’t make it, the top 20 MUST be gnarly!!)”

He was right: the top 20 ARE pretty nasty.  You can look for yourself if you have the guts. Meanwhile, here was my entry:

The “Incident”:

After being sidelined by a foot injury for the ENTIRE 2009 tri-season,
I was really looking forward to crushing some cyclo-cross races.
During a group practice session, my wheel caught the edge of a
concrete sidewalk. I not only went down–HARD–but skidded along the
pavement, head first, into a fixed granite bench. That new Giro helmet
I bought two weeks before? TOAST. Here are some shots of the aftermath
while they were checking out my noggin in the emergency room.
