I got a small case of road rash today on a training ride. Road rash this early in my triathlon season is a sure sign of good luck. Looks like I'm going to have a great racing season in 2012!
I'm gratefull I was wearing a pair of $3 cotton shorts rather than a pair of $50 cycling shorts. Skin is self healing, Lycra isn't.
