shit luck dude, that sucks
try to keep a check that it heals with the bone aligned as a couple of friends have healed with a horrendous step to it requiring surgery and pins/plates later on, speak to the consultant about a figure of eight traction strap to pull you into correct posture to aid healing – i know jack shit – just useful tips from others

well just after the rock garden at slaughterhouse combe there is a flat bit. Shane went off first and I followed. I came over the brow to find him on his knees. I thought he was going to take a photo until I got closer ! After removing his camelbak it was clear his collar bone was bust, poking up under his skin. A few miles from the car too ! Looks like his rear wheel hit a rock and threw him over the bars. I made him a sling out of my jacket and we walked back then drove on to A&E. Bummer.Posted 9 years ago

Just as i was starting to feel my fitness was getting there too…
Chunky, i’m right handed!
Expect to see me out on the trails walking and taking pics alot over the next month or so..
How did it happen?
Not giving 100% concentration on a fast bit of single track, out of the saddle on the flat didn’t spot a large rock in the ground, forks eat it up, rear suss didn’t, with, slight weight forward position the rear kicked up fast, i had no time to react, landed on shoulder, smashing down on the side of my head, slight crunching noise on moving said enough, and on touching my collarbone the break was prominent…then knottie caught up;-)
didn’y see a gyrt stone bedded into the ground, forks ate it up, rear suspention didn’t, so rear wheel got kicked up in the air,
i was out of the seat winding up speed on a flat sectoin of slaugherhouse so my weight was slightly forward, no time to shift weight back
i landed somewher e on my shoulder i assume, tnen twatted the side of me heed and now i have to try to type left handde.
it’s not funny look at the typingfPosted 9 years ago
