Monday Blues: Sudden Stop

This could have quickly taken a bad turn - I mean, one worse than it already looks. That is one sharp-edged stump sticking out of the ground. This was the second of two run-ins with the old oak tree that occurred, during the pro women's short track race at Bonelli Park, a couple weekends ago. A downhill turn with tenuous surface, combined with just a little too much speed was all it took to send the two on an off-course trajectory. No harm seemed to be done though, as they both picked up, untangled, and carried on. 

The course maintenance guy came along after this and rammed the stump a couple times with his 4x quad, but it wouldn't budge. Unsuccessful at that, I believe he took off in search of some dynamite.
