My Worst Crash Yet

Well here it is, it didn't happen recently but it happened and i'm writing about it Smile Biking around town me and my friends who I ride with all the time decided to take a short cut that we normally take before. This short cut had a series of three 10-12 stairs that were seperated by a small 2.4 foot flat space with no railing. Now normally we would take the corner slowly and ride down. Instead that day something in me said, what the hey, jump it. Riding down the first flite I attempted to launch off the second set resulting in landing on the thrid set. Wise choice....Madder ....After this I landed tweaked out and hit the railing causing me to swerve into the metal fence stretching out a hole that was in it(Chain like fence)to about three times the size. This broke my brake lever and caused me to flip. Getting up I looked at my bike and immediately saw I have blown the shock through the crown. This resulted in a week in the shop and a mere scratch. A good day it was.Smile
