rider down

Bugger. The sum of all fears. Thanks Stephen Gray for the photo. A rider went down because of a medical condition. Imagine hurtling along at 40 kms/hr + and having a stroke. I can imagine it.

The good news is that he is still in the ICU but recovering. Sounds hopeful and better that I had dared to wish for. This one of the real Gentlemen of the peleton. A graceful, kind and inclusive rider who encourages old ladies who decide to start racing at 50. We know that what we do is dangerous, but we don't expect the enemy to be lurking within.
