Hillingdon 4th Cat Crits Tuesday 2nd June 2009
My first appearance this year at the summer evening series at Hillingdon. The race was abandoned after 40 minutes as an ambulance was on the circuit dealing with a fallen rider. I hope she recovers soon. A stark reminder that Hillingdon can be a hazardous place. Crashes there are not uncommon, though abandoning the race is. Most of the best things in life involve some degree of risk. The advantage of a closed circuit is that it removes from the equation the motor vehicle, which is of course the source of almost all catastrophic injury to cyclists.
