    Whistler September 14 horrendous crash!

    Hi guys, so I went to whistler for my first time on September 14, I rode for five hours until I hit a jump too fast on crank it up, (just before the progressive drops area), I landed way on my front wheel well past the transition and wound up spending a few days in hospital with torn AC joint in shoulder and bruising on my hip so bad that I lost over two units of blood causing me to pass out when ever I sat or stood up.

    The crash happened about 415 in the afternoon and I'm hoping that someone got it on video.

    If anyone happened to get that crash on video, I'd love to see it!

    Thank you.

    Jeff

    Thanks man, I'm back at it, didn't really lose anything as far as willingness to take jumps but am trying to be a little more conscious about my speed and landing.
