Not sure if it belongs in Passion, but it is my Passion that had me Crashin this weekend. I guess everyone has a crash story or ten to tell. Hopefully people can add crashes that you didn't get hurt at all or maybe just a tiny bit and that you feel you are lucky to get away without anything major happening to you. Here's what I did this weekend at Sycamore Canyon Pt Mugu State Park, California.
Said O.K honey let me by….
As I approached what I now call The “Witches Crack”
As if under a spell things begin to get fuzzy and I feel as if I'm frozen in time like in a dream where someone is chasing you and you are running but not getting anywhere.
I stall and can't seem to escape "If you are not moving forward you are moving sideways”
I fall victim to the Witches Spell (not Photoshop)
I hear the Witch Cackle as she makes my 29er fly far above me.
My wife is aghast with horror.
I dissapear deep into the darkness of the Witches Crack as the evil tree laughs aloud.
My bike lands softly on the opposite bank almost as if into a hay bale.
Although I land on rocks as soon as I hit I instantly know I'm O.K. and instantly give the universal "he's o.k" shout to my wife. My pack makes first impact, then my helmet touches rock. I get up and untangle my bike but notice to handlebars have done a 180, I have to loosen the left shifter and brake to untwist it. I continue on the ride as if nothing happened. Today I clean up my bike a little mud but no structural, mechanical or cosmetic damage. Me a little scrape a little sore a little black & blue. It could have been a whole lot worse.
