Glad to hear you're alright, Mark. When I lived in CO in the 70s, Kenny Roberts was racing in the Colorado Mile, which was held in Henderson one Spring. I rode my bike to the race, and slid off the road on some leftover Winter gravel left in a corner. I kept the bike upright and didn't think too much of it. On Monday, my riding partner came in with his arm in a sling, and road rash all over. He'd also gone to the race, riding his bike, and had dumped it on the same corner on the same day.
