I was training for the Tour de France, but, alas, on June 20, I rode my mountain bike over the side of a trail bridge, fell eight feet, landed on my back, and suffered multiple fractures to my ribs, sternum, right shoulder blade, and spine--17 fractures total.
So, I won't be able to ride the Tour de France this year. Not that I would have anyway, but this torso brace really puts me out of contention...even in my dreams. Maybe next year.
Still, I'll be following the Tour each day and sharing my enthusiasm as the drama unfolds. Hope you enjoy the ride.
Let's be careful out there!
