I had my first crash today in a road race. Lots of road rash on my right leg, elbow and shoulder in what was a nasty spill on the last lap of a few laps around prospect park, Brooklyn here in New York City. My first crash during my first season of road racing.
I’m OK now and treating the scrapes but I think I’m going to take it easy this upcoming week, as I was scheduled for a mid-plan FTP test on the general build mid volume.
For those who have crashed before in road races, what do you do to recover and more importantly (as I feel this will be something I will experience), how do you gain your confidence again to do another race?
