As hairychested says, send a pic to mbr. Although you'd have to go a long way to beat this month's winner. Pillock clean chopped off the end of his finger with his brake rotor. Euergh.
Post ride injury (slightly gory pic content)
how the hell did he manage that?
gives me a chance to relay a story of my uncle about a nasty scald he incurred through ridiculous means.
He'd bust his lower leg playing football and was in an old style plaster cast. Like a cock, he decided against his wife's advice to have a bath, resting the foot up on the taps. Except he fell asleep momentarily and the plaster fell in the water.
Afeard of what the reaction would be he hit on the 'great' idea of drying it off with her hairdryer. All seemed good until he noticed it getting quite hot. So he took the hairdryer away - only to realise it was the water in the plaster that had got hot, and taking the hairdryer off ... made no difference at all.
Imagine a scald where you can't take the heat source away!!! On top of a broken leg.
He's a legend, my uncle.
foot feeling much better today: now feeling a bit more optimistic that might get bck on the bike in time for mayhem.
You need a manicure
That'll be a pedicure he needs...
Anyway just goes to show I'm right again on two fronts. Camping is stupid and tea is an evil concoction that should be avoided at ALL times.
Get well soon Drillski.
I feel your pain!!
Trying to cook breakfast and hot oil and fingers don't mix!!
Didn't take too long to heal, about 2 weeks till I could hold the bar properly, just stung when the gloves got sweaty!!
Proper dressing should heal that pretty quickly (hopefully).
YAY, feeling alot better today........
managing to walk on it, a bit, and can just squeeze a sandal on it.
15 days to Mountain Mayhem....
HEAL YOU B@0(%RD!!!
Either that or foot rot judging by that big toe!
Hope all heals well and good luck for Mayhem
Wasn't there another post about alcohol being bad?
I think this answers that question nicely -- a little Guinness on the foot wouldn't have done much damage and it might have killed off some of that mangy big toe foot rot you have going on
