I let myself be taken out of the game.
Victim of a double, triple, triple section that I had done a bunch of times the day before. However on this day it was a windy crowded Saturday near the holidays and the track was supper dry & dusty all the main lines were blue groove.
The double an easy 30 footer, the triple, triple was jumping the entire whoop section in two steps. First three fine but when I landed I got wheel spin bad and I knew I was coming up short for next three, panic rev wide open in hopes of getting spit out unscathed.
No such luck, I was catapulted over the bars and immediately run down by my own cart wheeling bike.
Shattered hip socket, tag team of two surgeons & five hours later I was unable to walk for three months but by far the most pleasure was giving myself blood thinner injections to the abdomen twice a day for a month.
Huge Thanks to Brian, Tony, Mitch and Blair if it wasn’t for you guys I’m not sure how that whole thing would’ve turned out.
A few bottoms up to you guys this evening, Thank You!
