In fact, my first injury between snow skiing, wakeboarding, and class V kayaking.
I had a lot of stuff on my brain and went for a ride to clear my head. I wasn't having a great ride mentally, but sure beats work. I was descending this manky, loose slope last night on my normal after-work trail. The move is down a loose, rocky slope, turn a mild switchback, drop over a huge root forming a 1 footer and then straightening back out to take more softball-sized rocks. I made it over the root fine, but my rear end took a hop after hitting a big rock just after that. That put all of my breaking on my front wheel, locking it up and over I went. I busted up my right shin, got a nice goose egg on my right forearm and messed my my left hand/wrist. I pushed back up to the top of the hill and down the back (the way back to the car). I splinted it with a SAM splint and tape and headed down. My friend Tracey followed. It was just about dark and we had 2 miles left to go. I pretty much rode with one hand, as I could only grip the bar with my index finger and thumb on the left. Braking was interesting to say the least. I'm pretty sure I broke the bone in my hand below my pinky, near my wrist. Even after a Percocet and two glasses of wine last night, it hurt like a biatch. My first big (26 miles) was scheduled for this weekend, but that's out now. Gonna go to the Dr. and see if it's broken. No way they're putting a cast on me, though. Just want to see what exactly broke, if anything.
On that note, let me plug SAM splints. I've used them a bunch for kayaking injuries and I don't think MTB'ers should be without them. Light, stiff, and customizable. Mine fits between my bladder and the back of my hydro pack perfectly.
I just hope I can get out there again soon.
