    Scary stuff, spine injuries are. I know guys who have broken their neck surfing, climbing and mountain biking. The mountain biker is a paraplegic now. The climber is having to re-learn to swallow.

    I looked at a vid the other day of myself plowing head-first into a big rock. So grim. Managed that header plus a shoulder and wrist injury in one ride. I deserved to be off the bike for months to think about my decisions.

    I digress... Speedy healing, @scottay :thumbsup:

    Switching from clipless to flats has greatly cut down on the risk of crashing for me. I have still come close several times but so far, each time I was able to recover because I was able to put a foot down instantaneously. Not sure this applies to @scottay's scenario but I thought that it is worth mentioning.

    Damn dude :(

    I blame Strava :devilish:

    Broken clavicles are fun :confused:

    Now you’ll have more time to sell bike parts online :coffee:

    Healing vibes sent :thumbsup:

    Tried to keep you from getting landed on by other log jumpers, picked your wounded ass up, walked you for what seemed like forever to the truck, and then drove you home. Which ironically was on the same mountain and doing the same thing as Scottay on a log jump or roll. Your welcome. :)

    Healing Vines @scottay !!

    Injuries are a thing here is the PNW as well .
    This season I have had 2 buddies with pretty nasty crashes. One was a clavicle which required surgery. The second was an OTB that caused 2 broken ribs, a punctured lung, and an eternally damaged ego! Good thing is both of those dudes are back riding after a short recovery time.

    I also coach kids on a youth mountain bike team and these dudes are always getting banged up because all they want to do is jump, big jumps!! So there have been concussions, broken wrists, broken arms, broken clavicle, and one dude went moto riding and bailed mid air on a jump and broke both his legs! Disclaimer, and before you think I’m a bad coach, all of these accidents happened while not under my supervision ha!

    I have to agree with you both. I can't tell you how many times Strava has caused me to ride way over my head and crash.

    Scottay is fine, says he doesn’t lurk here cause there is to much fun being had while he is down. He did hike today, not quite as thrilling.

    Isn't it stated somewhere in the by-laws that you have to dish on your own crash???
