[QUOTE]Yesterday I slipped in a little sand as I turned right, going very slowly. (I didn't see that sand!)
I did the same thing a few weeks ago. Turning right the front tyre dug in and slid, down I go, landing on bitumen. I got up washed off the blood with my drink bottle and kept riding. Nothing major just a couple of small cuts on my leg, but the next day my knee swelled up like a balloon and was very painful, I could hardly walk. It took a few days for the swelling to go down. I was quite surprised how much it hurt and how swollen it was considering I was barely moving when it happened. I have crashed a number of times but this one was the most painful. My knee must have taken the my entire weight of the fall, I guess.
I hope I never crash at high speed.
