I broke my leg on Saturday.
I was jumping Mav, and the oxer was close to the rail, so it was a tight right turn. Anyway, he bucked, right in the middle of the turn with his shoulders dropped and I fell right into the metal rail.
Doctors said I have a hairline tibial plateau fracture in my left leg. My translation, no riding for a month.
I know I'm lucky, I had my helmet on and it wasn't my neck that broke. I think it is safe to say that most riders who have been riding for their whole lives have experienced this in one way or another.
I'll be back on as soon as I can, I am counting down. Just one of those freak-accidents that couldn't have been prevented.
distances are like men. never grab the first one you see; it's never the best one, more will come along.
