So I was riding a double black diamond run today, slipped off a pedal and WHACK!!! I looked down and all i saw was three holes in my shin, not bleeding yet. But man, once it started to bleed it sure bled. Hurt like a *****.
Wont do that again without pads.

I had to get stiches 2 years ago from a shinner
I did a no-footer but the right foot didnt catch the pedal and just sliced down my shin :/

I've had my fair share of shin-burger from riding flatland. Kinda wish I would have used plastic pedals.

I feel you, but I've had it much worse.
28 or 24 stitches.
