    Sorry to hear that. Any update on what caused the neck pain? Is it gone? Hope you’re fine now. Thanks for sharing.

      Nothing my massage therapist couldn’t fix! Neck is on the mend and looking forward to racing in Canberra this weekend. Glad you enjoyed the article!

    one of the elements of competitive cycling that interests me is the psychological aspect – exploring the limits of what you can squeeze out of your body. part of developing yourself as a cyclist is understanding when to push yourself harder, and when to ease off. ‘pushing through the pain’ is often celebrated in elite sports, but there’s more to it than what you hear in the media and public comments. you need to be smart.

      Couldn’t agree more! Nothing smart about pushing the body into injury and forced time off the bike

    As difficult as it can be, knowing when to pull the pin is important. And as bad a day as you thought you had it wasnt half as bad as the guy who went into cardiac arrest half way up the climb on Sunday. To quote from the film the The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. “It will all be alright in the end, and if it isn’t alright then it isn’t the end.

      I was sorry to hear that, along with the cyclists who were injured in the other crash earlier in the day just out of Lorne. Such a great event and worthy cause, already looking forward to next year :)

    Sorry to read of your troubles Verita,Please get your neck arteries checked as well as tendons etc.Just in case.
    Bad days are my norm these days,Waiting on getting my leg arteries fixed with stents I had to redrill my shoes to set back the cleats to take pressure off my calf muscles which has helped a lot on climbs in the saddle.Enough of me get better soon Verita,Love your articles.

    nice, I had a bad crash 2 weeks before Lorne, It would have been my 3rd year there, I was so upset and disappointed, But I have to remind myself, I am alive, I almost died in the crash. Maybe I had a brain fart for just one second of bad focus, I was tired. I should not have gone out that day, it was cold and I didn’t need to train that day. Thank you for posting this.
