I showed up to Speed Week with a broken wrist and some scrapes after getting plowed into by a Buick the day before my flight out… so things weren’t too hot to begin with, as far as my body’s integrity. Anyway, let’s just say my crit skills were not quite up to par at the start of the week, at least when it came to accident-avoidance. I took a brief skitter on the second day at Roswell in a corner after getting chopped and rolling a tire, but it didn’t seem to affect me much in the way of form.—Nate King

We talked to Competitive Cyclist’s Nate King at Speed Week. We’ll be featuring him in the coming weeks (here’s a spoiler: it got worse for him). A Manual for Speed

Achieving Crash Zen:

Seven race days.

Four deck hits. As a sage told me, “missing more skin than many hospitalized burn victims”. 

All of 2011? 60+ race days. Skin met tarmac twice.

Always learning.
