Didnt think i needed shinguards....
I was riding on my blown out Foes Wet-1 fork while waiting for my new one, bad idea also.
Bottomed out the fork after a little drop and did a handlebar stand, then instead of going over i came down on my shin with the full force of 1-2cm DH pedal spikes, splitting my leg in 2 places. 11 stitches on top, 3 on the bottom
As soon as it happened i dropped my bike and started walking in everyones way because i was in shock, and calmly found my buddy and told him "uhhh i can see my bone...." then i was out cold haha
EASILY PREVENTED! Buy some!
