- had eventful day at FoD and Cheltenham A&E
had an interesting day at FoD and Cheltenham A&E, gonna be sticking to the sheets tonight!Posted 4 years ago
have to say A&E were quick and efficient and i got a ride in the paramedic’s car
diagnosis, mild concussion (i can’t remember the crash) and half my body covered in grazes.
other damage includes helmet and a broken Santa Cruz, not sure if the pivot broke to cause the accident or during but witnesses say i went straight on at a bend, over the top of a berm and slid out on my right hand side. the next ten minutes are a blank but somehow i managed to ride back to the van and kept asking my buddies “did i crash?, i must have crashed I’m bleeding, did i crash?” i don’t remember that either but they said i wasn’t unconscious at any time, anyway I’m sure a single pivot bike should move up and down not side to side like it is now 🙁twonksSubscriber
Ouch. Get well soon.
I had a similar off at Sherwood and lost 30 minutes due to breaking my helmet with the side of my head.
Very surreal coming back round when you can’t remember anything yet have been walking and talking.
My crash was on a single pivot Santa Cruz too.Posted 4 years ago
We saw you with the paramedics. Was that you on the side of the trail right at the start of the first run of the uplift session?
well, could be but 15-20 mins of memory is missing, so who knows! apparently i rode the bike down to the cafe after the crash so they tell mePosted 4 years ago
