    My doc said he thought I just hyperextended my elbow. I took two weeks off and it felt better so I went for an easy ride. Worst decision I made. First rock I hit I re-injured it, rode for another hour and took it easy. It has now been five weeks without riding and after an ortho visit I was told I tore my tricep and I won't be able to ride till mid June maybe July. I am now my second week into PT and I have not been able to start lifting to strengthen it yet.

    I would say take some time and let it heal. I was told I could rode ride as long as I did not get out of the saddle and put pressure on my arm. Good luck on your recovery!
