2012 - Year Of Fails

2012 was a good year for riding for me, I managed to get out a lot and progress my riding a fair bit, and with progression comes a few crashes. Here are all the ones I managed to capture on Go Pro this year. Thankfully, they're not all of me ;)

 Well done Sam. I really did laugh out loud. You crash even more often than I do. Love the choice of backing track....Take me to the hospital. I know that one, word perfect. I've messed up both shoulders due to a lack of talent... and commitment. Had one fixed and going back in soon, I hope, to get the other cut and shut. Happy landings!!

 haha cheers, i do love a good tumble, I'll make sure to get some more on camera this year Wink
Hope you get yourself sorted soon! I know how much it sucks having to stay off the bike!
Also, nice to see someone else as nocturnal as myself, haha.

 I didn't say I stopped riding.
It took 2 yrs to find the 5th surgeon, and the first to say 'I'll do it'
I kept riding until 2 wks before the op, in September.
I ain't fast or any good at DH, but I always get up and get back on the bike, if only to drive to the hospital.
At my age, I don't have 2 yrs to sit doing nothing.
Nowadays, though, I always wear armour.
Let's face it, he's not going to do the same shoulder for me twice.
A&E is a no-go area for me from now on.....they'd only laugh!!!

 Loled at 2.27 when the first thing you did after crashing was checking your tire pressure! Big Grin
