 It seems like most DH crashes dont seriously injure the rider. Idk if its the protection or general badassery of donwnhillers, but ive only had to stop riding because of a crash once. Seperated my shoulder :'(

  • + 3
 Yes it was Wink i was The ginnypig for the new gap.
  • + 5
 Have to say in response to "when do OTBs ever go right?" I once had an otb where I was forced to do an emergency stop behind an idiot in a 4x4, in toe straps on a flat bar road bike, and ended up leapfrogging over the bars onto the pavement! (sidewalk for you american folks) Safe to say I was stunned and amazed!
  • + 31
 If you call your sidewalks pavement, what do you call your... pavement? Or, I guess, the road?
  • + 9
 Yeah I went otb a couple weeks ago and I walked away.........................with a broken wrist

apparently I don't have your leap frog abilities Frown
