Xtra - all about it-- PART TWO

Not Exactly My Idea of a Good Time....

Loads of rain. Tons of crashes. A broken bike and a DNF later.....not exactly how I envisioned Nationals!
The post race festivities were still fun though... great food, great music, great people! Can't beat that....

Not good news.

I spoke with Kim over the weekend, and she is in good hands.....but will have a long road to recovery.
Be safe out ther can change in the blink of an eye.

Kim --at Lipton Team Training Camp. February 2007

In case you haven't already read about is the report from

Team Lipton rider injured in collision with truck
Kim Geist, a 20-year-old Olympic hopeful on Team Lipton, is recovering at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest after a collision with a tractor-trailer early this week. The Emmaus native suffered a broken pelvis, broken ribs, two collapsed lungs and several fractured vertebrae in the incident, but sources say her doctors expect her to make a recovery and she should return home sometime next week. No surgery will necessary, although one of her lungs is still being inflated artificially.
According to an article in Friday's Morning Call, Geist was riding on PA Route 100 Tuesday morning when a truck driven by Lee Reichwein, 41, of Locustdale, made a right turn in front of her. Geist struck the side of the cab, then, according to a friend, she curled into a ball as she fell under the truck's rear wheels, which rolled over her.

And the beat goes on...

Ok.... long time, no post. I know, I know... I must seem like a bit of a blog flake at the moment, but I assure you I am still alive and kicking! So much is going on these days, that I'm not exactly sure where I should begin.
Let me start with the Tour de Toona wrap-up. The rest of the weekend went very well for the team. The end result was TEAm Lipton on the the top step of the podium for Individual GC, Team GC and the QOM title! Well done ladies...!!
From the Brenda perspective though, I have to admit that I was crushed to be sitting on the sidelines during the criterium Sunday, considering that last year I won that darn stage!!! The good news is however, that my back has taken a magical turn for the better, and I finally feel like a normal human being again. I don't exactly have the top end fitness that I'm used to having at this time of the year..... and I am pretty much tailgunning it at the races, but I couldn't be happier about that fact that I am actually capable of being on my bike without pain!! Cheers to that.

Stay tuned for more updates.....
