    Gettin thumped

    Ok, what's the dumbest crash you've had? I'm getting a good list going of mine...
    Today I wrecked on the starting ramp at the bmx track after breaking a chain. I thought for sure I was gonna be able to ride it out, but no sale. Can someone tell me why the cool kids don't wear pads again?
    Yeah, yeah, I know - it doesn' t look that bad in the picture. But nobody makes me bleed my own blood! Fkn chain... Hopefully the bruised heel and thigh heal faster than the scrape.

    no pics but once at the local dj's on the 6 pack i hit the first one and cased for some reason.

    then even without enough speed i decided to hit the next double. thought i would come out ok at first, then right on the lip i grabbed me brakes because my stupid mind decided it would be best. on the 13-14 ft. double i landed right into the back side of the landing to a dead stop.

    no pain but very stupid. alex could vouch for that.

    dumbest crash? Probably yesterday at the djs at goose. I had just nailed the line I'd never hit before then was riding back to the rollin area on some tiny whoop-de-doos and somehow lost it and just ate sh1t. It sucked...

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    A guy I know crashed while just pedaling around in the parking lot at the trailhead and broke his arm. Nuff said. S

    Took a drop, front wheel stopped moving, landed on face just below the lip. Lower front teeth bit through the lip. Good thing I had a small audience when it happened to share my embarassment! 24 stiches inside and out...

    All better now...(physically)
