Crash happens!
« on: October 31, 2009, 10:33:36 AM »
Hadn't been on a group road ride in a while and have been hearing about all of these crashes on the SPBC rides. Low and behold about 10 bikes in front of me a girl goes down HARD! Pretty scary at first until she started to come around and EMS got there. Ride smart everybody. Hope that she heals quickly. Seeing them load her on the board brought back memories of me being helicoptered out of the woods.

That's true, but without the group she probably would not have gone down.  She was obviously a skilled rider.  She lay in the road chest heaving and making a strange sound of grasping for breath.  Non of us knew what to do at first, then she started to breath normal but appeared unconscious for a few minutes before EMS got there.
