Opinion: The Opposite of Learning to Fly
Strangely my worst injury happend when i was riding at 60%... And so with all the others from goofing around. I'ts when you don't focus when you get wrecked. There is also one more rule to remember... never on a ride say one more time!

Ella Conolly Breaks Elbow in Practice Crash at EWS Val Di Fassa 2022
@swenzowski: jeez bru. My inner most simpathy! ''affects everything i try to do" is an understatement. Mentally,physically,work,sleep all of it... it's exausting. Muscle atrophy so the arm and shoulder is just skin and bone. Physio advised to forget about riding . I found out today that i can at least jog so will start trail running or something. Looking back and thinking about risk and the risk we take as amature riders its not worth it was not worth it and wont be worth it for me in future...25years done and dusted. Stay strong guy! Heal up.

Ella Conolly Breaks Elbow in Practice Crash at EWS Val Di Fassa 2022
On the 27th march i had the misfortune of braking,dislocating and tearing liggaments and tendons in my left elbow. Surgery and 3 months later my arm is a mess my hand does'nt function properly and pain is present constantly. I am so happy that you did not require surgery! And hope you come back stronger than before.

@swellhunter: i feel both of your points. The look on my daughters face when she saw me shriveled with pain hit home. #3 for me. I got off "lightly"this time, but as the main source of income in our household if it was worse everyone in my family would have come off worse. Thankfully i took out medical insurance 15 years ago as that additional expense would have been a huge expense to cover so quickly... not to even mention the state of our state hospitals

@BobbyHillbomb: great words of encoragement and advice! Thank you. The mental part is the hardest at this stage because i keep replaying the accident and kind of nauseate myself thinking of it. Would be interesting to hear G's mental approach and how he deals with getting the trauma out of mind after such a severe crash . Also at 40 healing takes on a different meaning than it did at 20. I'll start out doing some gravel and then progress from there. I have always held the belief that after a crash you get better on the bike ? Will see how it goes.

Totally trashed my elbow a month ago, broken bone torn ligaments and tendons all the way down to the wrist. Needless to say. I am dead scared to get back on the bike and ride the way i used to...if ever again. The way the pro's get back up even after horrible crashes like G's is so telling of why they are professional. Dead set legend!
