3 years of no riding

INJURY: went off a jump with a berm landing, bailed wrong, and did a nose dive into the ground. it took 4 docs and three surgeries to find out that i had broken my collarbone, stage four ac separation, and a compression fracture in my back. oh and with a stage four ac separation, your collarbone is actually shoved up behind your shoulder

  • + 3
 you still have gnarly story to tell people though Wink
  • + 1
 very true Big Grin but when can you get back up and ride?
  • + 1
 depending on whether my last surgery worked (i won't know until a couple months from now), i will most likely be riding by next summer! one more year haha!!
  • + 2
 i feel your pain i just broke my wrist in a car crash after being up in winter park all weekend riding and watchin crankworx.. wouldnt be so bad but i just started ridin 3 weeks early after crashing at up at Valmont and gettin a class 2 tear in my ac joint.. hang in there atleast you live in this wonderful place ive only been here a couple months
  • + 1
 wow i am sooo sorry! that is a bummer...two injuries consecutively would be soo frustrating. having one prolonged injury is bad enough. how do you like valmont? pretty amazing hunh? there have been around 30 injuries so far there haha...awww thanks!! good luck with your shoulder!
  • + 1
 yeah valmont is the coolest place ever i can't get enough.. everyone hurts themselves on the same jump on the large line its terrible though. but thanks im tryin not to hop on the bike but i cant make any promises. how long till you can get back on
  • + 1
 i know right?! it has something for everybody! haha yeah...some of those lines are super swoopy and people start going super fast and plow into each other haha. i have to wait until next summer Frown so it will be a total of a little of 3 years
  • + 1
 it really does. thats crazy you gotta wait another year you def look healthy enough to ride in your video haha and very entertainin.
  • + 1
 haha you liked my vid? yeah that vid took sooooo much effort and it much pain was involved, but i was soo bored of sitting around haha...i fell over many times and have the bruises to prove it!
  • + 1
 haha yea ive made a couple edits i know how big of a pain they can bed. yeah i couldnt tell you were bored at all.. haha you got some super sweet moves though. you got any big plans for your first ride back yet? id have it all planned out by now if i were u
  • + 1
 i love editing though haha...bahahahahahaha my super sweet moves eh? yeah i've had PLENTY of time to perfect them haha. i have found that flippers are the best type of dancing shoe. my biggest plan would be to stay on my bike...i am pretty nervous about my first ride because i am going to be terrible.
  • + 1
 haha nonsense you cant think like that. what you meant to say is your super pumped and you feel sorry for the trails cause your gonna destroy them hahaha.. i like ridin much more than i like the editing part but i def like the finish product. and yes after watchin i would have to agree flippers def look like the best way to dance
  • + 1
 haha ahem...of course i meant that Wink agreed..riding is better, but filming and editing is a definite second best haha
  • + 2
 i have just recently broken my ankle and it sucks not to be able to ride and when i got back on my bike it feels so weird and i also broke a shoulder last year Frown
  • + 2
 oh yikes!! that's terrible...how you holding up? what did you do to your shoulder?
  • + 2
 Yeh im doing ok i guess, the ol'ankle hurts when going over jumps but just need to keep riding and applying pressure and build the muscle back up Smile . Last year i was new to the whole sport and didnt really know that much about it, and guys i had met said take the front brake off, kept asking my dad to take it off and he didnt, i went over a jump about 10 meters from some big trees in a mass panic pulled the front brake went over the bars sideways landed on my head ( was wearing a helmet it basically saved my life cause i landed on my neck/head also) and came down on my shoulder litterly yards from smashing into the oaks Frown
  • + 2
 i totally understand what you're going through (i broke my ankle in 4 places when i was 15)! i felt like forever trying to build that muscle back...oh god that sounds pretty much exactly how i crashed haha. i went off a really badly made jump with a berm landing and bailed wrong. the whole time i was flying through the air, i was thinking 'well this is a bummer' haha. and then i landed on my shoulder/ neck/head
  • + 1
 i have had my cast off 3 weeks on Tuesday and am already riding Big Grin How did you break your ankle ?? And how long did it take to build the muscle back up in it ?? ( need tips want to ride properly again )
  • + 1
 that's really good!! i actually broke it doing gymnastics...i was doing a back-flip off the uneven bars and i landed wrong. i can still remember the first two nights...they were horrible haha. i had to have 2 surgeries to fix it Frown ummm it didn't actually take that long (it just felt like forever) because i did a ton of ankle exercises. stuff like calf raises and such really, really help...oh and swimming helps too!! make sure you stretch it every morning so it doesn't get stiff
  • + 2
 i broke my collar bone first day back after messing up my knee.. 9 screws and a metal plate later.. i lasted 4 days before i was riding my bike to the beach... 4 weeks later started hitting jumps... couldnt handle waiting the 8 weeks i was told to wait
  • + 5
 haha really? that's sick. i wish i could have done that but my collarbone was stuck behind my shoulder bone, the end disintegrated, i had 6 torn ligaments, and a compression fracture in my back...haha i couldn't physically move my arm for 6 months...and after that i could barely stay on my bike...so i had my third surgery
  • + 1
 that nutty.. yeah mine was just way outta place like sticking up from the top of my shoulder but not through the skin... and now i just have a spot in my collar bone that is a bit bigger than a golf ball
  • + 1
 yeah they were actually going to try to put a plate and screws in, but it didn't work because my collarbone was partially shattered and in such a weird placement...ugg that sounds horrible! which shoulder is it?
  • + 1
 its my left shoulder and yeah. i was broken in to a few places and a nice bit of road rash... ill habe some sweet xrays to post after i go back at the end of august..... to lazy to post any of the injury itself right now
  • + 1
 definitely post the x-rays!! those must be pretty gnarly with all the screws and plate. what did you do to your knee? you should post pics of your scar..i want to see if it looks like mine haha!
  • + 1
 ill post one right now of my staples
  • + 1
 doo it!!! wait...you got staples?? ouch!! they just sowed me up...
  • + 1
 yeah i got stapled shut.. i just put them up... i dont have any newer ones... showing the scar now.. but it looks good
  • + 3
 yeah i've heard that staples leave less of a scar, but my scar looks fine...
  • + 1
 yeah its just a nice line across my shoulder... but my collar bone is now a bit bigger than a golf ball which kinda sucks.. i cant tilt my head all the way to the right cause the muscles in my neck start to pull tight
  • + 1
 oh that sucks. is the plate constricting the muscles or something? yeah i had bone grow on the top of my collarbone for some reason, so i had a huge bump too..luckily they shaved that off during surgery
  • + 1
 i'll post a pic of my scar
  • + 1
 ahha yea and what ya that would suck and i went in for double hurnia just befor last winter so winter came i was good to go but couldnt ride and now I gotta go in for knee surgery on both knees Frown don't know how long that will put me out for
  • + 1
 uggggg yikes!! i am so sorry! that's intense! surgery on both knees? that's gnarly! what did you do to yourself haha?
  • + 5
 fuck me...this vid is fucking hilarious...PLEASE DO MORE VIDS!!!!
  • + 2
 ^^^what he said..
  • + 1
 Anshan funniest girl in the world that just mad my DAY!! wow sorry to hear u havnt been ridding for that long don't no how u have survived I no I couldn't have survived that long I was off for 6 months after my surgery drove me crazy! hope u can get back on the saddle soon time.
  • + 1
 you liked the vid? SICK!!! haha...yeah it's been absolutely horrible, especially since they just built an amazing bike park a mile from my house. aww thank you! why did you have to have surgery?
  • + 2
 I feel ya, after a car knocked me of my XC bike the bones on my wrists keep getting out of place everytime I go DH riding so I have to wear wristbands when I ride and after I ride. hope you can get on your bike ASAP
  • + 1
 wow that sounds horribly painful!! haha awww thank you!!!
  • + 1
 I already have a gnarly scare on my right knee and I'll have bother one after sugary and I'll have a big horse shoe on my left knee after surgery and last time I didn't have them done at the same time but this time I'm hoping to get them done at the same time and yep it was pretty painful
  • + 1
 well at least if you get it all done at once you'll recover faster (hopefully)! you should post some pics of your scars and such
  • + 1
 amazing that you were able to maintain your sense of humor through it apparently! haha, very cute video! I tend to have 1 big injury per year... torn shoulder, broken pelvis, shattered elbow, broken hand... and most recently a concussion that took over 5 months to heal. I *finally* got to ride my dirt jumper again at an indoor bike park 2 weeks ago and it was just... the best. This concussion was the worst because for a long time I couldn't get my heart rate up, drink coffee or alcohol, watch screens, read.... most boring time of my life & watching my muscles & fitness waste away...... Anyhow! Props to you for the video and the POD (which is clearly how I stumbled upon stalking you) and I hope you have an awesome injury free season Smile I find you & your story very motivating!!
  • + 1
 ps- I just realized I kinda sound like a big baby whining about an injury that took me off the bike for 5 months when yours was a total of 3 years... oops... I'm tough, I swear!
  • + 1
 First off, I am pretty sure your stories make mine sound like I am whining haha!!! A broken pelvis, shattered elbow?! Holy carpet bag... Dang! I didn't know concussions could be that damaging!! Mad props, you must be a crazy awesome shredder to achieve those injuries! The reason why I took so long to heal was because of sexist doctors that didn't fully diagnose my injuries. As a result, my body deteriorated and it took probably twice as long to heal up. Despite that, I am so glad I went through it! I value riding so much more than I did and I am a faster/better rider for it!
  • + 1
 p.s. Thank you so much for the support!! It means so much!!
  • + 1
 how did they not see it on an x-ray of cat scan ? ive been through a lot of injuries that doctors couldnt work out put in a cat scan and it was clear as im sure they would notice the seperation and the collar bone misplaced ? good to see you healig thugh
  • + 1
 well the first doctor saw that it was displaced, but said he would rather have it like that than give me a scar on my shoulder. then the second doctor did surgery and tied my collarbone to the bone behind it and thought that would fix it. the third doctor took cat scans and tons of x-rays and figured out about the torn ligaments and such and realized simply tying the bones wasn't going to fix it. so he did the third surgery where he reconstructed my ac joint with my hamstring...aww thank you!!
  • + 0
 i know how frustrating it can be i have had a 1 year incident but that was sooo bad they thought i wouldnt walk again and from then on i have still hurt myself haha but i always get on the bike again !
  • + 1
 haha yeah...being injured and not being able to ride for extended periods of time just makes me hungrier to bike and become a better rider. oh my god! that's horrible...did you hurt your back or something?
  • + 1
 i shattered a disc and broke my pelvis in 4 places along with my shoulder so i was in a bad way tried to walk out of the woods too which was a bad idea haha woke up 3 days later
  • + 1
 gaaaaa...that's horrible!! you must have been in so much pain! that's gnarly. props on continuing to ride!!
  • + 0
 u should still go riding. I broke my foot, fractured two fingers and split my hand open in one ride. i went to the E.R. and after surgery i went and hopped on my bike and went back to the same trail and did it again all in the same day. thats how bada*s i am
  • + 2
 haha nice!! i wish i could but i can't. i barely can move my arm, let alone use it haha. and my leg is like a wet noodle, so only the left side of my body works

  • + 3
 we still have better accents than you, eh!
  • + 1
 agreed. I lived in perth for a couple years. you know what i hated most by the end of it? girls with american accents, the high pitch of their voice made it even more annoying.
  • + 1
 haha yeah bro...aussie girls are the best! good thing rhiannon doesn't have a high pitched voice or i would have to strangle MY future wife
  • + 1
 agreed they are. how do you know if he voice is high pitched and nasally or not?
  • + 1
 i did a study abroad for a semester and went to her university a year ago this coming january we were in bio lab together
  • + 1
 uhhh i've never met you in my life haha...how did you know i had bio lab last semester?
  • + 1

  • + 1
 lass i think you have a stalker
  • + 1

  • + 1
 ohhhhh really....hey wilkey who's side are you on??? jerrrkkkkkk haha
  • + 1
 i really don't know who's side i'm on. you see you and i can relate because of the whole america mountains snow thing. but i secretly wish i was an Australian that lived here in Utah
  • + 1
 haha cheers mate. the riding is amazing! how is the riding in the american mountains? rhiannon we are all one your side Wink
  • + 1
 its freaking sweet. the only down side to riding here in Utah is, if you aren't in virgin UT then it is a giant gravel pit. I am really good at riding loose gravely stuff as a result, and bikes look really cool covered in red dust. I wouldnt know what to do with loam and traction. i dunno about riding in colorado though. rhiannon whats colorado like
  • + 1
 you guys might as well know that rhiannon is my middle name, gwyneth is my first name haha...well it's freaking amazing compared to what it used to be. the whole dh scene is kicking off now and we just got a new bike park a mile from my house...there is a lot of potential here so hopefully we'll get more interest in building more dh trails
  • + 1
 wow that's a pretty name! are you named after gwyneth paltrow? that sounds gnarly wilkey. you should come to australia some time. gwyneth colorado sounds f*ckin sick! it sounds like at some point it could compete with whistler if there is any interest
  • + 1
 hey kahn you have something brown and stinky on your lips after that one, but your still cool
  • + 1
 wait what? did i say somethin wrong?

  • + 1

  • + 1
 yeah bro, but i broke my wrist yesterday. it sucks bad
  • + 1
 i am seriously blushing right now haha...what??? how did you brake it?
  • + 1
 i was sending it over a road gap and bailed wrong. landed on my wrist and nocked the air out of my lungs
  • + 1
 haha!! at least you have public health. this year i broke my collar bone twice, re adjusted my jaw taking my knee to my face snowboardin, had 2 concussions, and last week i broke my big toe dropping a bike stand on it. only went to the hospital for the 1st collarbone all because insurance companies say i'm high risk and wont cover me.and i cant afford medical bills. god bless the usa right
  • + 1
 I KNOW RIGHT?! it's bleeping ridiculous! i was really scared that i wasn't going to be able to have surgery because my insurance called it a pre-existing condition. luckily i switched plans right before i needed the surgery
  • + 1
 oh fuck! that seriously sucks haha...too bad you weren't there to kiss my booboos for me gwyneth!
  • + 2

  • + 1
 wow that's intense haha...when i crashed, everything hurt. i could almost not breathe because i was in sooo much pain
  • + 1
 ouch, to be honest it didn't hurt almost anything, just was scared of being alone on the landing of a drop where someone could land on me, but i didn't hurt just was scared because i was riding alone, so i just started screaming until someone dropped and helped me.
  • + 1
 oh wow that's horrible!! i am sooo sorry! i was super lucky that both my brothers were there when i crashed...i can't imagine being alone! how long did you have to lie there?
  • + 1
 like 10 minutes shouting hahahaha
  • + 1
 wow!!!! hahaha
  • + 1
 my left knee I fractured and messed up the muscals in it and my right knee I snapped my knee cap in half and messes up the muscals and the nerves in it
  • + 1

 haha i'm sure you'd rather be riding though! couldn't even imagine being out that long. builds character though!
  • + 1
 bahaha my character building is exhibited by my vid!!!! a big bike park was built a mile from my house and it's soooo hard to watch people ride while i have to sit out.
  • + 1
 and i can tell you have great character! you're a champ for sitting out. I'd probably ride anyway, making it worse.. ha i wish i had a bike part here in moscow. i have one a few minutes from my house in boise that my friend rides all the time and tells me how fun it is while i'm up here at U of I with nothing but a downhill course and a skatepark to ride that gets pretty old. a few friends and i are hoping to build a slopestyle course soon.. but who knows if it'll happen. ha

 i want to ride sooo bad, but i've tried and it just doesn't work...my arm gives out and my leg acts we noodle!! awwww i am sooo sorry!! you should come to colorado!!! we have some pretty good downhill trails and such! yeah i am super psyched about the bike park, it took like 6 or more years to be built. have you ever been to whistler?
  • + 1
 well hopefully that heals up fast! yeah i want to go to colorado.. as for whistler, no.. but i MIGHT go up next week actually! my friend and i made took a random trip up to canada yesterday in between bmx races to get donuts from tim hortons and decided we should go to whistler next week. so i hope we do!
  • + 1
 seriously? that's awesome haha!!! i was there a couple years ago for a week and it was AMAZING!!! DOOO IT!!!!! you race bmx?
  • + 1
 haha yeah hopefully it works out! ha. yeah i'm starting to race again. I did it a long time ago when i lived in vegas, and now i'm picking it up again, racing my dirt jumper.. not really taking it too seriously just having some fun. i like to jump, so naturally i'm not the fastest one out there.. i just go for style points. hah
  • + 1
 you lived in vegas? style is hands down better than speed...at least in my opinion
  • + 1
 yeah 7 years. ha. and i definitely agree! gotta love the steeze!
  • + 1
 wow that's intense haha!! but yeah you should come to colorado! we now have a couple bike parks and they are amazing haha.
  • + 1
 nice. i want to hit some dirt jumps so bad. trying to get some built! but i'm the only one that really cares. colorado may be in my future. i almost went to school there.. but decided on U of I. ha
  • + 1
 awwww that sucks! were you going to go to CU? thats where i am at haha
  • + 1
 yeah it was one of my options. stayed in Idaho because it the in state tuition. haha
  • + 1
 yeah totally understand...
  • + 1
 if i would have been as big into biking 3 years ago as i am now, i might have picked colorado. or montana.. haha
  • + 1
 yeah? well colorado has a lot of potential for downhill, but for some reason the resorts aren't taking advantage of it. if that makes sense at all haha. i think that will change pretty fast though because the bike scene here is growing really fast. montana would be amazing because you would be so close to kamloops and whistler
  • + 1
 yeah. i just got into downhill a few months ago when i started working at the bike shop. i'm only a 9 hour drive away from whistler and kamloops!
  • + 1
 whaaaaaaat?! wow i am super jealous! really? what bike do you ride?
  • + 1
 yeah! its only a half day's trip away! (and thats according to google maps, so i could probably get there in 7 1/2) Razz

  • + 1
 fancy!! you should totally open your own bike shop!! i think that would be the BEST job ever haha. i am double majoring in environmental studies and biology. i think i might add film as my third degree. i want to make science films haha.
  • + 1

 pretty sick vid mate! loved it. how did you get injured? major respect!
  • + 1
 haha thank you!! ummm well it happened two years ago...i was riding at the cu research park and i went off a sketchy jump with a berm landing, bailed wrong, and did a nose dive into the ground and skidded on my back for a couple yards. it took 4 docs and three surgeries to find out that i had broken my collarbone, had a stage four ac separation, and a compression fracture in my back. because it took forever to find this out, the end of my collarbone disintegrated so my collarbone will never connect how it supposed to. oh and with a stage four ac seperation, your collarbone is actually shoved up behind your shoulder
  • + 1
 holy shit!!! that's fucking horrible! you are tough to have gone through all that and still want to bike
