Shit Happens - Opinion
Shit really hit the fan when I was riding in sedona a three months ago. I was on the second half of the hangover trail, after the traverse, I decided to take the gnarlier descent down the rock faces instead of following the regular trail. (if you know what I'm talking about, you know how gnarly this line is vs. the normal trail) when I got off line between two rock rollers, both tires drifting to the right of the trail. Now totally off line and missing the roller I was supposed to go down, I had to huck to flat off of this ledge to save myself from crashing. went off the drop awkwardly and nose heavy. When I landed my right leg was extended (I ride right foot forward) and my right knee gave way upon impact. The impact hyperextended and twisted my knee inwards. I felt a pop, a crunch, and some movement that a knee should never do. The pain reminded of when I first tore my ACL, but even worse this time and it was clear that I had done something serious to my knee. Sat there and yelled in agony for 5 minutes. I was still around 1.5 miles from the exit of the trail, and I knew I had to get out asap. I couldn't really put any weight on it without sharp pains. I spent the next 3-4 hours limping and struggling to get down the trail, using my bike as a crutch, trying my best to keep weight off my knee. This trail is like most sedona trails, up and down, lots of technical features, not the kinda stuff you want to be limping on. The sun was starting to go down and I had to get out before it got dark. When I made it back onto Shnebly Hill rd, it was already 5:30pm and the sun was setting, luckily two Jeeps that were 4x4ing down the roadsaw me on the side of the road and gave me a ride back to the parking lot and my car. One of the hardest things I've had to endure in my life. Don't ride alone guys, and definitely don't ride gnarly lines by yourself either. Be prepared for whatever may happen and reserve time if shit does go down. My meniscus tore and flipped back behind the knee joint, severely smashed my cartilage as well. Got surgery and now I'm on the road to recovery, won't be riding for another 2-3 months though.
