    WCH out for a while.

    He went down landing the big double in West Texas this afternoon, broken collarbone (his 3rd). Could see it through his shirt, spooky. He still drove himself home though, damn!

    Everybody think healing thoughts and have a cold one for him.

    I'm surprised you quit riding and drove home!

    haha ...I remember you rode 2 months on a broken foot at Lindero, or that last time when you broke some bone in your leg and still rode until dark. ...you must be going soft!

    Anyways I'm sure you'll be back on the bike in less than 2 weeks.

    get well soon homey

    WCH is core. This happened less than 2 days after I saw him take some gnarly slams. On one, his dome hit the next lip at about 359 mph, left an impression in the earth... kept him down about 20 seconds, then kept on shreddin.

    Now you can be dedicated beer b!tch for a while.

    thanks guys (and you too superkat). no work today, i'm fully laid up. i can't even put on a shirt by myself it hurts so bad. i don't have a camera to take pics of the x-ray or the bone itself or i would hook that up. it looks like a golfball under there right now though, fills up the whole inside of your hand if you cup it...

    looks like i'll be bringing beer out and pulling around a rake and packing down the new stuff with my feet during the upcoming building season. maybe even taking photos if someone brings up a camera on shredding days...

    nah brad, nothing to do ith the bike, the bike rips. i've been riding it for a couple weeks now and fully have that bike on lock. we just newly pimped out our playline and made it larger, more tech, tighter and faster. no more slouching, you seriously now have to pin it to win it. unfortunately for me, that time i didn't pin it....

    Ouch, although after taking a look at your track out there in West Texas on Saturday, I'm not surprised - very committed - and in the infamous words of SMT "looks fun"

    btw, Carpet Drop and that double drop are fun

    3rd broken collar bone? I've heard of people with three testicles, but I can't seem to picture a 3rd colarbone.....Just rub a little dirt on it, it'll be fine. Hope yours heals faster than mine. They had to go in and splint mine back together with a aluminum plate.

    Sit back and enjoy the drugs, you'll be back before ya know it.

    i only get down with the herbal remedies. i never take the pills, they usually make me sick. i don't even bother filling my perscriptions...

    i am usually back on my xc bike in about 6 weeks and throwing it down again at about 9-10. i always try to take it easy for a couple months after i'm fully back though...

    FWIW you fools know you love my game face. it makes for the raddest pix...
