    Eating Dirt

    Is it Passion when you eat it on a DH and spend 5 hours in the ER and get stitches inside your mouth AND still want to go for a ride?

    Is that a row of stitches just under the lower lip? Jeez, I hope not.

    The stitches/wound on the left side of the lower lip look "manageable."

    Anyway, going riding after an injury is the best therapy - based on my personal experiences anyway.

    Best wishes,
    Terry

    no, it's not passion.

    you should have finished the ride before you pussed out and went to mommy to kiss your lip.

    O'Hill , some wet leaves took the front wheel out on a corner, I still have no idea what my face hit. Have a minor separation of the AC joint. I did ride the bike out though for 1.5 miles And now on my way to ride the Grove, lol. I cant even open the mouth enough for a deep breath.

    I wouldn't go ride if you have an AC injury. I thought I would man up and go ride after I had a grade 2 about 8 months ago. I fell a couple of times and it became a grade 3, total separation and a cc sprain, now my collar bone is no longer connected to my shoulder. I wish I had taken a month off in hindsight.

    Been racing since the late 80's, have 3 AC separations over that time, 2 to the left 1 to the right. All of them were class 3 or worse, both my collar bones stick up about 1 inch.

    The AC sep this time is minor, can get my arm over my head with a little work, rode 12 miles yesterday. Not much energy though, hard when you are on a liquid diet.
