Was out dirt jumping the other day and I cased a jump causing my left foot to slip a pedal and my right foot to go full force and swing the left pedal right under my kneecap. I got lightheaded from the pain but rode for another half hour or so and went home. When I got home my knee was really stiff, hurt to flex it. I cleaned the wound out good and later on when I took a shower I noticed a thick flap of skin hanging and a deep hole where the pedal spike got me. It's small in diameter but maybe 1-8" deep..? I've been caring for it good and it stopped bleeding but now my knee is so damn stiff I can barely bend it unless I help it bend slowly.
Just wondering what I could have done to cause my knee to be so stiff now. Maybe I bruised the bone? I'm gonna get it checked out ASAP. I need to ride!!
Anyone else get bitten by their meat grinder pedals?
