I'm typing this now with a friggin splint on my left hand that has my pinky and ring fingers lashed together. While riding my trusty Stumpy and opening up a gap some guys on DH/FR bikes on a fast, somewhat technical descent, I managed to get a bit squirrelly in the rut I was riding and slammed myself into a shale/sandstone rock wall, breaking my pinky, spraining my ring finger and opening up about 50 lacerations from my mid-forearm to my mid-triceps. The best part about it: I still had another 5 miles to go before I got back to my car!
I'm bummed right now as my riding is going to go into the toilette for a couple of weeks but, I guess that's the price you pay to play the game and the epic rides more than make up for the pain! Ride on!
