I broke two ribs at fdr a few years back. If you've ever seen it, I rode up the front of the "finger" spine in the front of the park(before the back was there) and I tried to wall ride off of that.. I went to high and tried to carve wayyy to quickly and just fell straight down to the ground from about 11 feet and my bar hit me in the chest... it sucked.. really, really bad.. I had tyo ride my bike to get to my friends house to get a ride home.. it sucked alot.. I can bend the one side of my ribs alot easier than the other now though.

Lets see, before we had a bmx bike, fractured my arm & tore the skin outta my elbows using a bannana seat bike to try bmx tricks. Later, flew over the bars when a chain snapped & scraped my shoulder raw on pavement. Both those sucked.

about a week ago I over jumped onto a picknic table and I swan dived into the pavement almost got a concussion and scraped up my face pretty bad I had a pool of blood in my ear by the end of the night (from a cut in my ear). And after thinking about it I realized when I hit my head actualy bounced off the pavement and then hit again. Being me I rode the rest of the night.

As a racer....

couple of cracked ribs
a concussion...well a couple, but one was pretty significant, I don't remember riding the second round at all
Best of all, "fractured" my spleen. The organ ruptured except for the very thin outer membrane. A few days in the ICU with my blood counts being taken hourly, while an OR was ready for me at all times in case they had to go in. It was a couple of weeks (after the actual crash) before the membrane let loose which is what sent me to the hospital. It very nearly killed me. I spent the next couple of months getting CT scans weekly, then several more months getting them monthly, and it was nearly a year before it was actually healed. Needless to say, I was off the bike for over a year, as even a minor impact would have killed me before they ever got an ambulance to me.

I won't even bother with the scrapes, cuts, and punctures.

I'm going to go with seven sprained ankles, all on the left ankle. It sucks having to ride with an ankle brace.

loads ;
worst is going over a jump and losing control of bars for landing, ouch, so that's skin ripped off my hand so could see muscle.
Next ; shopping bag caught in my front wheel, I went over bars, concussion and night in hospital.
More recently 2 weeks ago, I was trying manuals and tore my right shoulder muscle, 2 weeks of agony and off all sport pretty much.
2 years ago we set a jump over my mates pond, I did it in the dark, hit the farside, and over the bars, landing on a rock, lot of facial grazing and torn left shoulder muscle - hospital visit...again, my mate did the same jump, nearly 1 year to the day = he ended up with a spiral fracture in his left calf, so plaster & crutches for 6 months, pins in his bone for 1 year.
He's 30 and will never do any tricks of any sort ever again, except windsurfing, loved snowboarding, I decided though, I'm same age as him @ 30 years old, to get right on it and do as much as I can as you never know what will happen in the future etc.

keep riding

* safely where possible.
