    Ouch!

    Went upside down off of my c-dale. Landed on my butt, fractured coxxcyn in 2 places. Compression fracture on L1 and compressed T12. Happened on jul,16 and am now getting around. should be able to ride my roadie in 4-5 weeks. MTB 6mos to a year is what the doc says. I don,t like it but it could be worse. Went out on the boat fishing but that was a bit of a mistake. Real sore today. Didn't even catch dinner!LOL

    Anybody else have these injuries and how long for recovery?

    My son had compression FXs in his spine from crashing on his head ski jumping in Norway, lost a few centimeters in height. The ski team had him just riding landings for about 2 weeks until his balance recovered from the concussion. He was back jumping in 2 weeks. They don't listen to the doctor, in fact they don't want to know, they just want a jumping machine. He won his next competition in Finland. I think this whole approach to athletic recovery is wrong.

    Hi folks,
    Went on the Cervelo roadie yesterday. rode about 30 minutes and had fun! May try 10 or so miles tomorrow and see what happens. Will still be a good while before I ride the mtb but at least I have the nice roadie for now. I forgot how fast the bike really is. Felt good to peddle something at last!
