I thought I was unbreakable.....
Well i went for a ride today on some easy single track witrh my big bike and did some drops and jumps which were a blast. about 1.5 hours into the ride i saw a ver steep but short section of trail off to the side of the main trail. This 10 foot section was fairly rocky with some medium size portrusions on the way down. So I leaned back and slowly rolled my front wheel over the edge. Once I leveled out i went off line and went over the bars after my tire found a snug spot to lodge itself in. While falling I saw a tree about 8 inches in diameter to grab and break my fall. well it broke my fall and my wrist. Its ironic that I rode two of the most challenging and dangerous spots in the state and came out unscathed and only 3 days later break my wrist on some lame little section of trail. Moral of the story is wrist gaurds and finding other ways to break your fall. Off to the hand doctor tomorrow.
