    This is a repeat but I finally learned how to edit.
    My first try:

    Boyne Highlands crash
    Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner.
    Liberty is a well armed sheep, contesting the vote.

    Heading to the Canyons in two weeks. Need to get that visual out of my mind.
    The Canyons is amazing. You'll love it!

    Never been to Deer Valley but from what I hear it's more true DH than Canyons. More rough rocky and steep technical descents.

    Canyons is all groomed and flowy. Jumps, stunts, features, etc.

    Yeah it's always the random crashes that go bad, not the stuff you expect to get you.

    Insurance, yes, thank goodness.

    yeah, i mean, this wasnt my first time going through there...i guess i just got over confident in myself....wont happen again!


    yes i did get hurt...wind was knocked out of me for a good 5 min or so, the gopro screw left a nice bruise on my chest, my arms were scuffed up, my knees were scuffed, and my left arm and shoulder hurt for i would say 4 days. You gotta learn what NOT to do by your mistakes

    lol you sure do,,,,, its always a good idea to get some skills coaching/tuition from a qualified coach, this will sort out all your mistakes and progress your riding more than you can imagine,,,

    Sorry you got hurt but you don't crash your not riding hard enough. I had a sweet wipeout Monday trying to beat a strava time for a local trail in the rain no less, I placed 3rd over all. I think my crash blew my time to win , oh well next time. I do suggest some gloves though, peel the skin off your palms just once and you'll know why. For some reason skinned hands hurt more than anything else well maybe not a bone sticking out of your skin but it hurts none the less.

    Or learn WHAT to do first. Pad up I'd hate to see the shape I'd be in if I weren't fully padded every ride.
