On Saturday, whilst squelching round most of Wales on the Retro Ale Wobble, Ed (orange71) and I were talking about our bike related injuries.
I only have one serious incident to write home about, which is managing to break my collar bone and shoulder in one go.
Whilst jumping the doubles at my old local BMX track, I managed to clear the gap and the landing slope. Great I thought.... fairly
as I flew through the air.....and then it went wrong!
I landed on my front wheel which folded it in half, throwing me over the bar onto my head, my head smashed onto the ground splitting my helmet in half and I also managed to bend my sus forks under my down tube!!
A quick stay in hospital and a month off the bike
So, hit us with them guys, give us your worst!
