My injury has got nothing on some of you guys... I don't know if I could deal with some of the things in here as well as you people have.
Wrists should NOT bend like this though... =/
1 metal plate, 7 screws, 15 stitches.
My sister had something like that happen, except her bone was poking through the skin! Eek
Yea I was close to having that happen from what I'm told.
I have really thick Dakota work gloves for riding, chances are if the break was an inch away from where it was, there would have been bone showing. Big thick synthetic leather, and shock absorbing rubber is what saved me.

Yeah, thats good! She had no gloves or anything, and it also happened on a road(paved, covered w/gravle[town too cheap to repave]) hill, which when I went down this hill on my XC bike, I reached 45MPH...Eek

45mph=~80ish km/h?
I've done about 65/70km/h on my Banshee.

The slightest bump at that speed is sketchy.

I was going down a steep city street, and when I hit the brakes at the bottom, my front wheel sailed over a recessed manhole cover,and locked in mid air, and skidded on the other side of it... luckilly I thought fast enough to release it, and regain traction, and reapply the brake! Eek

EDIT:, my speed record was 54.7MPH on my old Clifcat Tankass.
