    Sabine, Donna, and Dorit are all fine.  Broken bones for each of the three after a rare slow crash at the track.

    BJM might have a broken bone up in Bend during the criterium.

    Leon Pitts broke one as well, up at Cascade with all the other NorCal travelers.

    nothing but good thoughts for everyone.

      Please let me know if you guys need/want anything. Tell Sabine to feel better soon.

      How terrible! I hope Sabine, Donna and Dorit all heal quickly but don’t rush the healing process. Ben J-M broke his collar bone. Godspeed to everyone!

      Read this post this am, after the Tour. Photos already on Flick’r. Yikes!

      Best wishes for a quick heal-up ladies, from the Happy Trails Crew.

      This update flicked from the hospital:

      “Donna and Sabine are doing laps at the hospital with their IV poles. Apparently Donna is a lap down.”

      Sabine…So sorry! Our thoughts are with you and the other gals.

      healing thoughts to all.

      broken/healing bones require more calcium so that means free license to eat all the ice cream you want!!!

      It was truly a scary incident for us watching in the stands, too, albeit not nearly as for those who were involved.

      The pics were as ugly as the incident and glad to hear that they’re gone now.

      Peace and speedy recovery to the three of you.

      Heal well, heal quick.

      Thanks for the good thoughts.

      I was sitting on the curb of the crit trying to not get sick on people’s shoes and all I could think was how I didn’t have it that bad compared to my bro last year.

      Hope all the other crash victims are relatively comfy and in good spirits.

      I got to watch an awesome tour stage today
      and michael is pampering me and made me pancakes

      miss mary made me chile verde

      and nothing is on fire here this morning…

      yep, things are good here!

    29. July 14, 2008 at

      Sabine – enjoy the pampering! But heal quickly. Watching the TdF each morning is one of the few benefits of being laid up …

      Oh crap, does that mean Ben is going to come out and kick all our asses at Cyclocross this Fall?

      Get well, y’all!

    32. July 15, 2008 at

      To all those who have fallen on the tarmac…..heal fast ! ‘Cross is almost here. Hope everyone isn’t too banged up to get out in the mud come October.

      Yes it’s true,Sabine lapped me in the first and only Broken Bones IV Pole Crit held at Regional Medical Center in San Jose where drug monitoring was going on the whole time we were on the course.Michael did an incedible job announcing and got the staff really worked up.Dorit,we really missed you being there and making it a real “hammer till you hurl race.”

      The race was dedicated to Ben JM who would have loved this race format.Right Ben?

      A serious THANK YOU to
      Michael,Andreas,Linda,Erica,Fritz,aka Matt Fritzinger for getting us all through the night at RMC and thank you Pat Briggs and Tom Fahey for being first on the scene to administer to our serious medical needs.You guys know your stuff.

      Thanks to everyone who has posted get well wishes.It does help us heal.

      Donna -The Train Listener.If you saw my crash picture you will get it.
