    Five days ago I fell off my bike. Was going slow down a slope I’ve ridden dozens of times before, bike began to slide and front wheel washed out. I came off rolled and hit a branch by side of the trail. Broke my back – transverse process fracture in five lumbar vertebrae. I was unlucky and very lucky, the injury is stable with no nerve damage. Mtb can be dangerous but in my circumstance trail conditions, ability and luck all played a part.

    Does anyone know how CG is now?

    Is Celox like QuickClot?

    Back in 2006 I had a nasty spill motocross racing. I got up and stumbled to the side of the track and felt a warm patch on the inside of my race jeans. First aiders rushed over and discovered a 7″ tear on my inner thigh. Lots of blood, tissue and muscle on display made me almost faint. When one of the first aiders then pointed out that I had missed my femoral artery by about 2cm I did faint.

    Later discovered that the foot peg of my bike had caused the tear. I wish I hadn’t watched that video now.
