Here's the helmet from my ill-fated crash six days ago. (Thanks for the suggestion, Snakebite.) It's been added to my "Helmet Hall of Fame." I wish I still had the old Protec Mirage I rode until it was basically perforated in two. I'm doing much better and have been out for a couple of short rides. I'm completely off the Vicodin -- that stuff never did me much good for as irritable and cranky as it causes me to feel. Now I have to heal the bone bruising in my lumbar area. Probably no CX racing in my near future. Oh well, I need to spend some of that time studying anyway.
