Bad news :(

I had a high speed high side south of Bay of LA and am in San Ignacio now. Nothing broken but my ankle and knee are balloons. I was fully armoured up and am pretty lucky I limped away from this crash. Never had a crash this hard or at that speed.
I'm here icing and compressing them but I don't know how it's going to feel. I am on the fence if I'm going to try the race solo if I'm injured.

Bumps and scrapes despite full armour. These are not the issue.

Ankle and knee look like this. Not feeling good when bending.

All I have to say is....stupid stupid stupid. It was a crash on nothing special. I had gotten a flat earlier coming out of san felipe so I pumped the tires up to 35 psi which made the bike handle sketchy, and at the same time I was all paranoid about flatting again. Basically I was thinking about my tires instead of riding and bam.

I'm not sure what happens from here.
