 Hey, BP, glad to hear you're coming out of that ok. Don't mess with concussions! Give it time to heal, more than you would for another body part, don't try to just gaman suru through it. The brain is a delicate instrument. Hang in there! Evan

 Damn straight reverend. Scared myself enough to take it easy for the next month. But have got a thing for this trail now so have the desire to get back out there building day by day. Cheers man.

 Holy Moly!!
Dude are you all there? I thought you were joking in the video! A very funny scene! 2 bad crashes and on knocking you out! Heal up soon mate!
Those jumps in the opening scene were knarly, would love to see more! It looks like you have some wonderful trails all around! RideOn!
Did you hit your face because your eye looked swollen too?
I agree with Evan take it easy until you brain recovers it lost and busted brain cells!
RideOn mate!
Loved the art at the end, superb!

 Lol ! Thanks niko. Yeah was out cold bro. Was out riding by myself too which was probably not a good thing as when I woke up had to piece everything together by myself. The jumps at the beginning are half way btw our house and my folks. The crash there not so bad.. so yeah funny ! But the crash on the trail.. not cool ! The trail has gaps that get progressively larger. The one I ate dirt and slept on was only about a 3-4 meter but backside of landing pad is right-angle bike eater gnarly so did not want to come up short ! Overshot-faceplant-lightsout.. pretty much how it went.. Still very sore and sorry with a nice shiner and friction burn from helmet strap to boot. Full face territory down here bro !

 Good story mate! sounds like a killer trail! big gaps and jumps flowing together, wicked!! I know how you feel about underjumping a jump! but overshooting too is full of pain!! A full face in order for sure! I loved all the fresh angles! Im planing of doing some more angles as well but when out with friends the helmet,.chest and tako are killer! its easy and fast! But for a solo ride when I have time to switch between angles I want to give leelau's angles the use they deserve!! Heal up and Ride hard mate!! RideOn!!

 man... no gloves, no pads, xc helmet... pads aren't comfy but... saved my leg 3 days ago in a bad bad crash on the street...
I was uncoscious twice in xc helmet after minor chrashes. Minor in comparison to what I did wearing the fullface helmet when luckily I saw only stars a couple of times but remained consciousSmile

 You are right bro. Next purchases are protection investments ! Coming from the nice gentle trails of Japan am still adjusting to the rough and tumble trails here in Cairns.

 be carefoul aussi - a had like easy crash on my shoulder and now i am 3 week off work and home resting - but what can we do this is part of mtb-iking . my local friend is overshot big roadgap 2 weeks back in bp and he broke front rim and right wrist - and buying some extra protection is not bad idea .... get well soon and ride on ..........

 Thanks grgos. You are right this is part of what we do. Also good to meet your limits every now and then. Hope you recover well and get back out there soon. Ride on bro.

 Unconscious!? That's scary! (I've never been unconscious so far, knockin' on wood...)
Glad you're OK now(?), though... (any scans needed?) Take care / take it easy for a while. Wink

 Well, I remembered when I landed on my head at Geisskopf / Bischofsmais in Germany. It was a double I miscalculated (too much speed). I wasn't unconscious then but I didn't want to go on riding that day.
