Yesterday, my 13 yr old California riding buddy was hit by a car. Thankfully he is ok, but that must have been a scary experience.
Here's his email i just received from Bjorn:
"I had an accident yesterday when I was doing my training ride. I was heading north along the lagoon when a car came around a blind corner out of control.
I turned around and saw the car skidding side ways towards me. It was like a wave coming towards me and I tried to sprint away but he car hit my rear tire hard
and launched me into the ditch. I was air-lifted to the Childrens hospital in Oakland because of back pain but it looks like I’m is going to be fine. There was an article in the Marin IJ (San Francisco Bay Area Newspaper) today so I wanted to let you know that I’m alright."
Bjorn is one of USA's brightest stars of tomorrow. At the young age of 13, it is clear that his talents are extraordinary. I really look forward to watching him grow into one of the top World cyclists! He specializes in mtb, cyclo-cross and just started road racing. I wish i had a photo of him because he's also the cutest thing!
