The short story

Winsted MTB race, 3 min into warmup lap I slid my rear wheel into a washout and sorta fell over. Wouldn't have even counted it as a crash. Knuckle of my little finger on the left hand hit the ground and sorta crunch in towards my thumb. First thought was "I think I just broke my hand".

Rode the 4+ mile warmup loop anyways (denial) and lined up for the race. Was never in it and bailed after one of 2 laps. Got my 8 miles or so of riding in anyways and basically all of it was with one hand.

Appt in 30 min to find out the prognosis.
