So today I went on an awsome ride through technical sections, DH, and lots of dirt jumps. Anyways, I came flying down a steep non-technical section at around 50km/h, tried to take a short turn and BAM! Slid a good 15 feet because of a stupid small random gravel patch that wasn't supposed to be there. Scraped/bruised like mad knee and a cut. This was the ONE DAY I forgot to wear shinguards! UGH! I noticed that my helmet had a few scrapes on it which were not there before, (that's why it's always good to wear a helmet) otherwise my head would probably have a gash on it. I got up, shook it off and continued on with my ride. When I stopped later I found out that a peg was missing from my pedal, well i found it, in my leg. What does the say about the quality of Kona Jacksh!t pedals? Just a small cut from it but deep. And did I mention my scratched up frame?? It has battle scars too, but that's why the bike came with touch up paint.
Note to self: WEAR SHINGUARDS ALL THE TIME!
I will have pics in a few minutes... once I find my digi camera.
