came out of a corner yesterday and got a bit of a slide on thought I had it coming back till the front wheel clipped the edge of the trail, spilled onto the only bit of rock free trail surround laughed about it as I looked back at the 6-8ft of skid and slide marks
Tell about your most recent crash.....
Always good if you can laugh about it afterwards.
Started to laugh at mine yesterday and thought I'd broken my ribs. False alarm, just jabbed my elbow into floating ribs low down but it gave me a scare.
Starting to feel confident yesterday on a descent yesterday so lifted of the brake, next thing i knew i was in a heap. Only think i can guess was that i hit a rut or rock which caused a pinch flat. Only got a sore wrist now, which is lucky as i could've been far worse off by falling to the stream bed on the other side.
Looks like the Wyre Forest has been taking some casualties... Think its because it's finally dried up and running fast.
Here's mine from last Saturday, snapped collar bone, just hoping its all fixed and strong for the Alps in July.
So Annoying to be off the bike now for a fair few weeks while the best of the Summer weather has started.
Travelling at 30mph, it went a bit like:
That van is on my side of the road it's going to hit me head for that gap I am going very fast the brakes they do nothing I'm not going to make this corner it's covered in gravel don't try to turn you'll come off I'm not slowing down in the slightest okay definitely going to crash now oh shite there's a wall behind that hedge please don't let this hurt too much get ready that's a big rock OOF no not over the bars please...
What about the bike MY PRECIOUS BIKE is the bike alright christ that's okay as well.
I got away with a trivial cat scratch on my arm, then sat on one of my conkers as I got back on the bike, and had to spend a couple of minutes walking up and down the road, bent double.
Another victim of fast rebound here. First time jumping on a new bike, first time jumping with an air shock. Bucked forward on take off but no damage to bike and only a cut knee for me. This was last saturday.
Decide to build a jump closer to home to practice on, but a poorly child mid week kept me from riding it. I finish work at 4 today and will be experimenting with rear suspension settings soon. Hopefully i wont be adding to this post later this evening
