Chest protection

Would chest protection from lacrosse (if u no wat that is) or hockey do just as well as biking chest protection would?

It would make your shoulders look goofy. I think hockey and LAX pads are different. They are designed for different types of hits. In those sports its from others. In DHing its from rocks or trees. I guess you could use them. I don't have a chest protector. I just use shin/knee guards and elbow guards. I might get a chest protector.

I guess your custom title isn't exactly correct...Pro Downhiller eh?

Yes, falling...fun....

I guess you could do it. I Play both hockey and lacrosse and have not even considering wearing chest protection anytime i've gone DHing. I usually only wear shin guards because my pedals are nasty spiked. I got a pic of the carnage.

If I wore ALL my hockey pads it might be sort of fun. But I'd rather be riding my bike then falling.

Funny story. It actually doesn't hurt that much. I've got used to it. I dunno about that jackass thing.

One question, where do you downhill in Florida. Considering most of it is below sea level.

Your the type who doesn't like Kerry for no reason. Have you ever listened to him? He's a ******** genious compaired to sharpton or Bush. Plus its way before sharptons time. We're gonna have a female president before him.

You do have a point, he'd almost HAVE to have a black VP to boot, just to keep the whack jobs in the Klan from trying something.
