Last week I told you about the upcoming 24 hour Pedal Prix race....well it didn't go quite as planned!
My son Andrew ended up breaking an ankle when his bike got pushed into a steel post. His foot came out of the pedal and he must have knocked it when his bike rolled a couple of times. The bike got fixed and the team finished 15 out of 215 bikes. They also won the best presented team. Andrew only got to do 9 laps and the race was only 4 hours old when his race finished abruptly. This year there seemed to me many more injuries than other years. I guess that's because the bikes are getting faster, and the slow riders do not keep left. So now I have a bored 18 year old at home for a few weeks, who can't work, referee, drive to go to uni! Sadly he will now also miss out on a soccer carnival interstate that he was chosen to referee at in two weeks.
The bike looked so good this year....and it went smooth and fast. This was the last photo I got before Andrew crashed about 20 seconds later.
