    I learned my lesson last season. I jumped a gap, about 6 feet up and about 15ft out, bike went slightly to the left, my body motion went slightly to the right...came down and the first thing to hit the ground was my face. Luckily the soil was soft but I think I cracked something as it gave me headache's for weeks and made a quiet poping sound if I touched it. It sucks wearing a full face for the places you have to pedal up though...
