Question List Your Injuries

so how far do we go to pursue our dreams and overcome those challenges

when do you say enough is enough

me in 5 years of riding

broken elbow - out 6 weeks
broken wrist - recurred for 6 months would take a couple weeks off go ride and smash it
dislocated middle finger- kept riding
sprained ankles
broken leg requiring surgery - out 4 months
separated shoulder - 3 weeks
can't remember if i had any concussions ( ha ha)

Broken Clavicle... off the bike for 3 weeks...

Broken right hand.... off the board for 4 weeks.

Concussion... off bike for 2 weeks... brain off for 2 months.

Split elbow... No stitches, probably should have... off bike for week.

That is all in 5 years of riding.

Once I take my training wheels off the count will probably go up!

Cheers!

Dan

No. I believe in moving forward. The aches and pains of mid life are bad enough without admitting that half of my problems are self inflicted.

Too bad we weren't "shipwrecked" longer!

Doh!

I forgot to add a rolled ankle while walking out Crippler one day. I was doing a trail day and I fell walking.

That's right... walking!

So just guess how I ride?!?!??!?!
