So, riding in a very familiar trail when I realize...damn it's windy today. I ride up the hill and daaamn...really windy I'm guessing 30 mph. I take a few minutes to appreciate the view (and gather my breath from climbing up) and then finally get on my bike and ride down the very first steep descent and uh oh... the wind pushed me too far left, gotta correct! I simply froze and held my bars straight and ate it hard...that has not happened in such a long long time. This was a good wakeup call that even though I have few years of MTB'ing under my belt, noob mistakes happen to us all. Be careful out there and never underestimate familiar trails.
My left ankle took the grunt of the impact. I was on the ground looking up in so much pain I though I sprained it or broke it, I didn't even wanna look lol I could barely move it. one of the first thoughts was crap...I have work on Monday, what am I gonna do if I broke it. My left shoulder, arms, and elbow are banged up my helmet got dinged up and my thigh bruised along with my ego lol The idiot in me tried to bike around but I just couldn't once adrenaline wore off. Gonna be off the saddle for at least a week or so until this swelling and stiffness goes away. Gotta love MTB'ing though!
