    @tbarnesarc texted me a photo from the e-room this evening. Seems he lost a bout with gravity, as we all do from time to time. Shoulder involved. I'll violate HIPAA if I say more.

    Mega healing rays to our favorite photog. Don't let this little setback derail your lifestyle progress OR your riding progress!

    Healing vibes to you, Taylor. I guess you're in good company with Lopes crashing recently. It can get rowdy quick out there, as I've proven too many times. Let's hope your camera is a part of your recovery, and you'll be able to hike and shoot until you're cleared to ride again. Which I hope is soon!

    I think my ER attire really brings out my eyes though....Should've taken it to make a new jersey? o_O

    Went down on a stupid turn towards Art School. Snapped my collar bone ten years later on the left side but closer to the shoulder this time. Wasn't in much pain and was able to get down the hill with some friends help, pedaled home and drove myself to the ER. Ribs hurt more than the collar bone. Not sure about surgery until I see a specialist. :bang:

    Stupid hidden rut...

    Why am I suddenly flashing back to you pulling beers out of your sling for Kevin and yourself while watching races at Fontana?

    Like I said above, don't let this set back your progress. Just consider it a pause button, not a rewind.

    Wow, that sucks. Trying to figure out what caused the crash looking at the video over and over. Looks like the front end washed out? The reason I am so curious is my wife had a get off last weekend and we can't figure out what happened there either. She went over the bars, but nothing broken, just sore. Heal up quick.

    I think someone said he hit a hidden rut when he veered too close to the edge of the trail. Looks that way to me also.
    .
    Maybe a soft edge and then washed out upon correction.

    Pick one, got a few
    Watched the video but had to stop it before the pileup based on the other comments here. Having landed on the same shoulder several times the last couple years I have somehow managed to not break my collarbone. I have however managed to pretty well tear up the rest of it and can tell you it ain't fun. The simplest tasks can be painful or even impossible. Listen to the docs and take whatever time they say to get well before saddling up again @tbarnesarc . I'm stubborn and invincible( & didn't listen) and can tell you that isn't the best approach.

    Did I hear you say "SHART School - haven't done it for a little while..." just before you crashed? Good name for the trail.

    sorry for delayed response to your kind responses. Been in a lot of pain today. My ribs are killing me so I've been trying to sleep as much as possible. Hoping to see the ortho tomorrow to find out if he can plate the collar bone back together. Hoping that is the case so the recovery is quicker but we shall see.

    Fingers crossed for a good doctor and plan of care, Taylor. Maybe tell 'em you're a "shoulder model" so it needs to heal fast, strong and looks good.

    Cardio when you're ready and new photos/videos asap. I'll try to round up a camera and lets do a shoot somewhere soon.
