I rode to the hospital!
Last year on a spring ride i failed to make a corner due to my inexperience (i had only been riding for about 10 months). The corner failure resulted in my falling down and another broken piece of plastic trim! I hurt my shoulder but pushed though until this april wheni decided that pushing through the pain for a whole year mit not be a good thing anymore. Long story short, my ride today was to the hospital to get a MRI to find out what in fact is damaged. I anticipate that the results will indicate that my arm needs to be cut open to repair a torn tendon.
