Why did Kerr stop racing at the top after his crash?? Went fastest after that in the root section. Could have salvaged his run maybe? Strange

@ZFuss: Like I said, the percentages are what they concluded from their study. This is open to scrutiny and that is why the forum on their website is open to discussion to provide more insight to people looking for answers. For now, we have to use this study along with crash dummy impact testing data and our own common sense to try and make the best possible decision. It's not easy but we have no other option for now. H

@sammccooey: I hear what you are saying. The problem is a crash usually happens in a split second and we don't always have time to adjust to a "safe" position for landing. Braces are not perfect and certainly don't cover every situation / circumstance. The data shows they are beneficial in certain circumstances and real world feedback from riders supports this. However, the study referenced above is not a fully randomised trial and should be taken in its own context.

I wish they told me that my free time would be almost non-existent for the first while after qualifying and doing internship. It gets better later on at least. Good luck!

I would find out which PT your local sports club uses and contact them?

That's a difficult injury to recover from. The subtalar joint takes a lot of strain. I would suggest you don't lose hope and continue on a dedicated PT program that strengthens your lower limb muscles and supports your ankle. If you haven't seen a surgeon for a while, I would go back for a review and an opinion. They may be able to offer some additional treatment options. Good luck with the rehab.

Hi Jonas. Yes I would start out by strengthening the muscles around your knee and improving your flexibility. A dedicated PT program would also be good.I would also invest in a good pair of knee guards and maybe even a brace. Good luck with the recovery!

Sorry to hear that. Trigger finger can be very debilitating. Only thing I can suggest is investing in a good pair of gloves with some extra padding. There are theories about teaching yourself how to fall and prevent injuries but I'm not sure how practical this would be when your flying to the ground at 50km/h.

I don't really believe in or take multi-vitamins for general use as the evidence shows they don't make huge difference as long as you follow a well balanced diet. I usually just use electrolyte replacement drinks for my rides along with bars/jellies.
