Plans change

Well how quickly things can change...
only days ago I was looking forward to my upcoming races, and now they are suddenly all cancelled.
No Sunshine Coast Tour for me now until 2009.
To think this was one of my 'main goals' for 2008... all gone in the blink of an eye. The Avanti Classic started well - fantastic weather, great turn-out of riders and spectators, but then some chopping of wheels occurred about 20km into the race and it was all over... two bikes and two riders lying in the middle of the road. I guess I am lucky - the girl behind me (Lisa) broke her collarbone, whereas I 'only' tore a huge hole in the side of my knee. Either way, both of us will not be racing (or training) for some time. I have had to find some positive things from this crash, although they are hard to see at the moment. And I have already redesigned my race calendar for the year in my head... there are still some great races to come in Aug and Sep. I can't wait to get back on the bike, but right now I just need to have some patience while my knee heals up.
