While out training on his motocross bike over the Christmas period Gee bit off one too many peat bogs, which resulted in ulnar collateral ligament damage on his thumb! Here's his description of the big off. "It was a fast crash, on a long open section where I dropped the front wheel into a peaty rut. I got chucked over the bars and landed in a ruck just in time for the bike to land on top of me! I then had to ride back to the house one handed, much to the amusement of Affy and Rach who it appeared had never seen anything as funny!"

Get well Jesse - From all your Friends! Get well Jesse - From all your Friends!
Today was one of the most painful days I’ve ever experienced. But here’s the catch…. It wasn’t me who was in pain.

Glen, Reece, Jesse and I were riding some trails out in K-country in the outback, basically in the middle of nowhere. We were having a blast hitting some new gaps and pinning some fresh dirt when we ran into a fairly large hip that was a bit technical to get speed for. Our whole gang practiced the run in for about half an hour, each of us trying to decide if it was worth the risk to hit this new hip gap.

Broken hand after crash Broken hand after crash
If you love riding bikes and pushing some of your limits, it’s only a matter of time before your body ends up needing professional help. Whether it’s the last run of the day syndrome or the little lack of attention on the trail or stunt that you have ridden a 100 times, many of the riders young and old end up waiting in a hospital line. Injuries are a part of any sport but biking has more than it’s share. Here is a little story of my last hospital visit and some tips how to prevent such an accident and if you are unfortunate, how to get back riding faster.
