I wanna talk to Samson!
another injury to add to my list
well after having some really bad back pain lately, i decided to get checked by my doctor. turns out i've pulled some muscles in my neck/back. not serious at all, but what makes me mad was that i was just riding around, coming home from the skatepark. also ive been recomended to stop riding hardtails, im super pissed. in our sport injury is just something you have to deal with on a regular basis i guess.
heres some of my other bike related injuries.
braces punctured through lip
2 broken bones in hand, sperated shoulder, spraind wrist, bruiesd ribs.
damn i must suck
oh well just thought i'd post, as im pretty pissed.
will be back on the bike in 2 weeks depending on how i heal up.
on a side note, does anyone wanna donate a short travel mountain cross bike to me? pretty please?

Thats' too bad you have a large list, could be worse though. Mine is quite small....
1-Broken 5th metacarpul
1-Broken 5th Metacarpul
1-Broken wrist or torn ligaments or tendons, not sure never got it checked out so i could still ride but it was messed up for a good 4-5 months and only in the last 3-4 months have i gotten complete range of my wrist back.
Numerous rolled ankles that hinder me from walking well for about an hour or so.
is making a comeback.
Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.
well really nothing yet for me other than some roadrash, giant bruises and such sore ankles from landing big drops with my toes on the pedals (instead of in teh middle of the foot) Im really luck i geuss, well ive only been seriusly riding for about a month and a half. oh well, gunna happen sooner or later...
Damn, just broke my nipple riding my tricicle around my room, add that to the list.

I think that about does it...not too bad I guess *knock on wood*
Torn rotator cuff
Broken thumbs(1 each hand)
Broken C-4 vertebrae
3rd degree burn on elbow/back of arm
10 stitches on elbow
4 staples in head+infection afterwards
That is really everything that has happened to me, bulk of it is from MX. Hand and concussion was from BMX, Stitches from MTB, Staples from rolling my truck. Foot from jumping into pool, everything else was MX related injury.
Only one injury, but a good one. Broken wrist/arm. Two breaks on the radius and one on the ulna. Titanium plate with six screws holding the radius together. It's been exactly three months since the surgery today. I've been back on the trail for a couple weeks already. My doctor isn't real happy with me, but what are you going to do.
My list is a smaller than it should be considering the last fall I took.
Scars, and that's it. The last fall I took was crazy. I hesitated on a drop, the front wheel dropped under me, my face went straight into the ground and the seat came and hit me in the back of the head, hard. All I got were cuts.
stretch your back. will go a long way
Chillin the Most
WOW, you s*ck!
JK. So does that mean your going to miss Fall Classic? That would s*ck.
I wanna talk to Samson!
