    I don't think any shock setup will help keep up with huckzilla or half dime

    true, my point was that I got an all mountain bike so I wouldn't go over the bars all the time like I was on my XC bike riding tech but it's a stretch that anyone would get that from my post referencing an obscure thread about a totally different topic. apologies, I tend to suck at the internets

    There must've been a glut of broken bike parts in Moab. I got a dented rim and a cracked helmet!
    But damn I had a good time- first time I've been in YEARS.

    Heal quick.

    no such vid exists (though there should be some lovely pix of my cankle)... sadly, it was just a stupid "fooling around" injury. while we were waiting for davec to fix a flat, hillary & the boys were practicing some ledges (going down). i, on the other hand, was attempting same going up (not the one pictured in the moab pix thread)... didn't quite get the back tire up and during a sloppy dismount i ended up rolling my ankle under completely on the lower side below the ledge. sunnova&#$@ that hurt(s). but since we were at the very top of amasa, i had no choice but to ride down, gimpy style.

    you know what they say though-- a bad day on the bike is better than a good day off the bike (especially when moab is involved). thanks to ice & athalliah for tending to me at camp[SIZE="1"] (when they didn't abandon me)[/SIZE], and sportsman for the usage of the ankle brace (and shot of stranahan's on the trail... strictly to ease the pain).

    Don't feel so bad, Terry. I'd take this over any good STD.



    But I actually did get Air Terry pics before this all went down.


    And you did slay on the climbs... like usual.

    Hands down you get Injury of the Weekend.
    Fall of the Weekend, however, goes to nomad-trasher.
    Since when did Need have anything to do with this?

    That was more of a dance than a fall. Michael Flatley even got a little jealous.

    But be careful, because you might get a little too much courage.

    I think sportsman has part of the sequence. To capture Nomad_rdr's entire crash would have consumed more memory than flash technology currently allows. It was quite a dramatic performance.
