Disappointment

Daughter
in hospital.
End of hopes
for National Mountain Bike
Championships.

Shoulder
dislocated, fractured.
In good spirits
despite disappointment. She will
mend!

Our daughter arrived last week for a visit from her home in Spain, specifically to enter the National Mountain Bike Cross Country Championships last weekend and the Endurance Championships in the Isle of Man this coming weekend. Unfortunately on a practice session last Saturday she came a bit of a cropper — an early end to her racing season! I was glad that our eldest son was with her at the time, doing his own practice lap for the ‘fun’ race. With a bit of luck she will be out of hospital in by the weekend — fingers crossed.

      Thanks Jules. I’m sure she will mend quite quickly, she’s young and fit! Just arrived home but has another check up at the hospital next week. 🙂

    Here’s hoping she mends quickly and next year if she chooses she can enter this event again. A scary thing to happen, nonetheless.

      Will do. Thank you so much for your kind thoughts. Good news is she is home now, just a few hours ago. Very sore but in good spirits. 🙂
