DC Local Elite Racer injured in a training accident

this note circulated to me through a bike racer friend who is faster... fitter... and associated with fast and fit folk

the message is from Dave Fuentes' wife Christine...


From fast CX/road guy's Dave Fuentes wife....

I can't get FB to work and so many caring people are asking questions
already. Here is an update:

Dave was struck from behind on FFCP this morning on his training ride.
Driver & witnesses stopped to help & call 911. I am so grateful he
wasn't alone.

As far as we can tell, serious head trauma was avoided. He is in
surgery right now to repair broken left femur. He also has broken
right shoulder and they will deal with that in a few days. We'll be
here at Inova Fairfax on Gallows Road for awhile. I'll update as
necessary. We feel your love and positive energy.

Dave Fuentes is a MACHINE! A ROCK SOLID MACHINE
this accident could have been worse
luckily it was not worse

the injuries are serious
but not as serious as head or neck

Dave... heal up fast so you can get back to the sport you love
get some rest
glad you were not more seriously hurt!
