A dear friend of the Pink Team, Maria R. was injured in a crash at the Mellon City Bike Race this last Sunday. We would all like to send our best wishes to Maria and her family as she continues to recover in a Muscatine hospital.
Maria was hurt in a crash on the fast downhill side of the course, suffering some significant cuts to her face and rupturing her spleen. She was rushed to the local hospital where she had surgury to repair her spleen and stitch up her cuts.
She's doing well today (Monday) and will be in the Muscatine hospital for a few days, then return home to recover.
Again, we wish Maria the best and hope she has a speedy recovery.
- The Pink Team
