I am one of the lucky ones. I've ridden a road bike now for about five years, this was my first "real" crash. I did not loose my spleen, even break a bone. Unfortunately, there is not even a great story to tell about my speeding down a great descent to win a crit, there is only a fall on my head.
I am supposed to be out of competition for three weeks. We will see about that. It seems like a long time but a week's worth of fitness has left my body, I still have a pounding headache, the ligaments in my neck are torn/damaged, and staying awake for more than 8 hours in a stretch is a victory in and of itself.
