Pre-emptive strike - yes Ive come off my Fat and broken a rib :evil:


Damn, bad news although I've always advocated a gentlemany approach to riding where your key injury worry is a chaffed perenium from a poorly worn in Brooks.

Let this be a lesson to the more fresh faced riders.

Harsh above from 'the blue chicken' but, try as I might not to say it, he does have a point.

From memory the Wobble does have a number of slithery, slippery descents and it's as much tyres giving way as suspension or not so caution is the watchword. Throw in a handful of weekend "on your left mate" warriors and it's a recipe with free addtional tears.

Obviously got to temper the above with some inarticulate insult. The best that I can come up with is 'pansy' - I rode Mayhem rigid ss in the Solo class two days out of isolation (in hospital, not chokey) with typhoid and an enlarged spleen that meant if I crashed I'd be dead inside 10 minutes. And I came DFL. Gung ho tally ho I say.

Far be it from me to be sensible, but....

Speaking from close to 30 years Martial Arts experience.

If the rib is just separated from the intercostal, then you might just get away with a ride... provided you don't do too much breathing :wink:

If the rib is cracked or definitely broken, then don't do it.
