    last time you crashed

    I've noticed, in the past 3 days i've crashed 4 times. I crashed 2 times
    on jumps, now i have cuts all the way down my arm...
    The third was trying trackstands on round abouts at the park. not the best idea.(but i can do it know!)
    4th time i didn't see the stump and flipped.
    But i've had a lot more fun and improved a lot.
    when was the last time you crashed?
    you only get experience after you needed it

    Well I haven't been on my bike much but I skimmed a rock with my face for the first time about a month or two ago. That was really scary for me. Typically when someone sees a female with a scratched and/or bruised up face, they don't think bike wreck.
    I wreck a lot actually but it usually isn't bad.

    With my current weather conditions, I'm either not crashing much at all (not hitting the single track as it is under a fair bit of snow...nothing major in the crash department) or I'm crashing lots (having to unclip and dab / slide etc. - minor bailing here and there).

    I think I'll likely be pushing things a bit more this summer, though.

    Thursday last week. If I'm riding hard I'll have a minor crash almost every ride. I stay bruised an scratched. That's just part of the game when you are trying new stuff and technical trails. A big one every year or so. My wife had her worst over the weekend, broken ankle. First emergency room visit in a few years. Of course we are both approaching 50, we don't bounce, we thud!
    What do I want to be when I grow up.....Dead!
