With her recent races already suffering from a sinus infection that just wouldn’t go away, Pua was hoping for better results at the XC Nationals in Granby, CO.

On a practice/warm-up lap of the 4.2 mile course, she took the wrong line on a sketchy part of the big downhill and had her bar-end puncture her shin.  With some Lidocaine patches and quick stitches, she was able to toe the starting line and finished a respectable 6th place.  Then she raced the Short Track the following day and placed 9th.  Solid.

Wanna see a picture of her “war wound?”  You know you do…

It’s going to be so pretty once it’s healed up!
