 I know its a fucker but that's me mate I'm always breaking something! Schoolboy error I'm afraid hesitant on stoopid steep decent uncliped one foot the other stuck due to wide shoe then went otb and fell a good 12-15' onto rocks smashing foot. Still had a wicked time and can't recommend it enough mate. You'll love it. Coulda stayed for the last couple of days and soaked up the sun but saw weather and thought an early flight might be the best option! Think I was right. At least its winter and come spring I'll be ready to rumble again! N

 Dis-placed break of the Navicular bone in foot.

 Just had to look that bugger up!... Navicular eh!... funny little bone but no less painful I should imagine!... sounds a nasty / annoying accident!... but am glad to hear you had a great time, despite the early finish!... when did this happen then?... and how long till you reckon you'll be back on a bike?...

Definitely reckon you made a good call on an early flight... as I'm currently snowed in!... think my neighbours out with his snow plough and I need to clear our drive!... oh what fun eh!... had a days downhilling planned for Sunday too!... but don't know if that's realistic now!... certainly not in the Welsh mountains...

anyways... hope you're all good and goes without saying... heal quick buddy!...

 6 weeks of boredom ahead. Did it the end of 5th day so lost out on 2,but got off lightly if you'd seen where I did it,injuries coulda been a lot worse. Cheers and I'll be in touch nearer springtime for some more damage inducing behaviour.

 reminds me of a day i was out solo,new trail,middle of nowhere,no mobile signal, getting carried away Smile OTB on a steep rocky trail,flew a few meters ,landed on head , heard cracking noise in neck, had vision of slowly frying in the sun and being eaten by wild boars and foxes, .... lol man those were good times!!

bummer, but it looks like you will be back on the steeps soon enough! tup look forward to the footage ( sorry abt the pun)

Salute
