?? What's so graphic about this thread ??
EDIT: OK, I clicked on the picture and saw the photos. If I had one broken arm and someone was standing there taking pictures of me, I would get up and beat their a5s with my good arm.
I hope your friend is OK. That sucks
How did he crash there? Anyhoo, that really sucks hard.
Like a circus monkey on a stolen Harley......
Sue whoever owns that property. The "No Trespassing" sign isn't big enough and that road isn't properly paved...
Sucks for that guy. He'll be out for a bit.
Is it bad that I laughed at those pics? Dude looks like he totally ate sh|t.
all so there's an thing called brakes for an reason
I am specialized
That sucks.. but how exactly did he eat shjt on that smooth, wide, flat trail anyway?
I just can't think of any situation (barring catastrophic mechanical failure) where someone could fall on such an easy looking section of trail and sustain all those injuries (busted one arm, gouged up the other, smashed face). In addition to bike handling skills, there're skills involved with falling also. This guy apparently has neither.

That doubletrack was actually very loose. Just bad luck. He's actually been riding before you got your training wheels.
Yep, that messed him up. He'll probably get a few pins for that one. Hopefully the Salsa is alright, too.
I'm guessing he was coming too fast down that hill and either over-reacted to one of those rocks in the road or locked his front brakes. Either way, that sucks.
