My 14 year-old son Avery raced great, powering up front in Men's C race. Midway through, I observed a crash. My friend -- another junior parent -- went over a downed cyclist and flipped about 5 feet up in the air. Came down hard on her left shoulder. I put down camera and slipped on blue EMT gloves. Performed rapid trauma assessment. Acute L shoulder pain. Stabilized. X-rays later showed fractured clavicle and pinky.
Trade Zone again next Sunday, 3.15.2009. First big show is Jeff Cup, near Monticello, on March 29. A favorite venue.
