That broken collarbone was pretty epic -- coming into the final of a road race in Wisconsin, Jaime sheared the fork off his Team Mack Waterford in a pileup. It was heinous! Check out the Team Mack web site for a pic -- click on Photos, and go to the 2004 Photo Archive. Then, to make matters worse, the local-yokel hospital didn't know how to treat road rash, and over-diagnosed the collarbone as being a "compound" (breaking the skin) fracture! So Jaime was shuttled up to Madison, where we found him after going from hospital to hospital ... thankfully his ER doc in Madtown was a cyclist! (Oh, and then he drove home the next day -- in a stick-shift car! This man is an animal!)
It'll be fun to watch Jaime and the rest of the 3s tear it up this year, and maybe he can convince me to do some 30+ races?
