Should have bought some shin pads...PIC

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'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.
