It was certainly a big gap and he really got some air, but landing into the bank with your feet off the peddles wouldn't have been nice.He had some good speed.
I can't work out what the deal is with his feet blowing off the peddles almost immediately. Maybe had 2nd thoughts?
Speaking of long recoveries, a mate is currently laid up while the surgeons patch him up with a handful of surgeries after a big off at the MX track. Both ankles, both femurs, and ripped his right shoulder apart pretty good. Bloke is one tough unit though and as long as they can get his arm working again I reckon he'll get back on the bike. He raced a few seasons in the VDHS series a few years back too, possibly a few on here may know him.Too much coasting into the kicker! Holy shit that's big. Both wrists broken? It's going to be a long recovery.
Nah, that's what the wife and kid were for! Ha, well, except my daughter is 4, so great for cuddles, not so good for cooking yet! And wiping was just a stretch too far to ask of either of them... Not that I didn't try of courseOuch!!! On the up side I guess you have learnt to do a bunch of stuff left handed now.
Always and forever! These ones even survived, didn't need to get cut off.Good to see in not the only person still wearing gloves.
So, it'll be 6 weeks tomorrow, so I should finally put this up here. Anyone on the Bluies ride in July has prob already seen this, given I think it was the most filmed crash in Sydney this year... certainly for July anyway!
Road Gap I've done before, but not for a few years. The corners before were a bit rougher this day, but most of all being in a gear or two too high meant when I wanted speed, I basically couldn't pedal...
Easiest way is the Dropbox link below, and before anyone asks:
- yes, I've already uploaded of these to Pinkbike in the hope of getting some Friday Fails infamy.
- yes, the bike is completely fine! Including the rear wheel, SC Reserve are truly indestructible!
I'll post up one of the aftermath two of the aftermath photos though.
Final result was a broken Ulna and shattered Olecranon, plenty of pins and screws in there. I'm doing OK now, just working as hard as I can to get full movement back!

I think it's you at 2:18
Ha, I've been super bust all weekend, kid sitting yesterday and a 12V install into the truck today, but I've had about 5 million people message me to say I'm on FF! Totally Famous now!Yes it is! Famous now
Well, without the crowd I probably wouldn't be internet famous now. But that crowd also meant that it was super friendly and supportive as I was on the ground. At least 5 emergency services people right onto me (inlcuding my wife!), so was in very good handsOh boy, in front of a decent crowd too.
Unlucky, the bike really dumped you on that one
