I crashed pretty hard on the singlespeed mountain bike at the Phil's World trail on the Ribcage last weekend.
Kiviok was behind me filming and caught the wreck on video. I added a couple of slow motion clips in but it's still pretty difficult to see the crash. I jumped way too far and flat landed which bent and broke my rim sending me instantly into the dirt.
I heard the loud bang and almost instantly felt the pain from my side hitting the ground. Ouch! Couldn't breathe or say anything for about a minute which seemed like 5 minutes at the time. Glad Kiviok was there to help. Ribs and kidneys are hurting. I feel about the same as my rim. Somehow I've been able to keep from sneezing since the wreck but when I do its going to hurt! Hoping to heal up and put in a hard effort at the 12 Hours of Mesa Verde race coming up in 19 days.
