I f***ing hate cycling!

Worked hard all off-sesaon and pre-season, juggling work, child and spousal committments... Rides at 5am to alleviate the inevitable "you're spending too much time riding and not enough {fill-in-the-blank}". Firm deflection of weekend work tasks - "sorry PM, I'll be gone those dates AS I MENTIONED 2 MONTHS AGO."

First race of the season. A small, meaningless race - just meant to get that racing "feel" back... 11 miles in * boom * crash, fractured elbow, game over.

I f***ing hate this sport!!!

what kind of elbow fracture? olecranon, supracondylar humerus??? did you have surgery? I heard there was some racer who bypassed the non-weightbearing through an upper extremity by putting a swiss ball between his chest and handlebars on the trainer. If you had surgery you may be back at it in 6 weeks or potentially less. Not terrible especially early in the season.
