Ironman, you are cruel!

eDBiLLy & I began our trip to Lakeville around noon on Saturday. Everything was going great until about 6:40 pm, when somehow, the Yakima rack on eDBiLLy's Jetta decided to eject at 70 mph. It landed in the ditch, still with both bikes attached. This was a rack less than a year old, professionally installed! Both of our bikes need to be fixed, but thankfully, no one was hurt. The really bad thing is eDBiLLy's Jetta has the back window knocked out, with a whole bunch of paint missing off the trunk.

That is the saddest thing I've heard today. Sorry man, did you ride?

No ride, both of our bikes are pretty tweaked. My rear wheel took the brunt of the impact, along with my front brake. eDBiLLy's fared not as well-broken saddle, pedal, and a couple of other components. We're just thankful no one was behind us.

Awful. Now will the professional that put the rack on pay for the damage?

I guess you can cross off the Ironman for next year.
