    “narrowly escapes injury”. No she didnt, she WAS injured, more like “narrowly escaped death”

    You’d think her sponsors would make her wear a frickin’ helmet

    Very lucky girl, get well soon etc

    I don’t quite understand why she appears to be wearing a skin suit?

    silly move, she should know better

    No helmet

    If she had been wearing a helmet, it would be getting used as an example of a helmet “saving” someone’s life.

    what i like is how when i first met her some years ago, she (and her brothers) had a broad shropshire accent

    shropshire accents aren’t like gnarly dude

    You have to ask whether her mental faculties have been affected by previous blows to the head

    I like the way it describes her as ‘shropshire’s downhill mountain bike champion’ – as though she is the champion of shropshire 😛

    Strange,they don’t even live in Shropshire or England for that matter…but hey it’s only a minor detail,different country and all !

    I agree with thomthumb!
    BUT she should have been looking where she was going!Helmet is up to the individual.
    When I had a similar crash as a young’un on me chopper- riding away from the corner shop with curly-wurly in mit- I wish had said “gnarley dude”, instead of crying and running home to me mam!
