Rider split open cut above eye for stitches. Good one indeed but everyone is ok.

Well, nvm. Posted above while I was writing. :)

Hope they're ok. That can bleed a lot!

My humor was not meant to be pointed at the injured rider. I apologize if it was taken that way.

Healing vibes sent his way.

Karen.

I'm volunteering as fast as I can.

I'll take a chance and guess that he isn't offended by any comments here. After all, he id ride off a 3 foot wide ladder bridge that is flat on the ground. ;) He did ride everything until point ok….

When kids ask me if riding something is easy, I carefully remind them to remain focused at all times. As soon as a rider relaxes and loses focus, bam!

How many times have we all seen a rider clean a techy stunt/feature only to have a yard-sale as soon as they are back on trail and ready to continue?!

Does the NSMBA supply bags for blood donors or should we bring them in our pack?

You pack it in, you pack it out.

Damn that must of been a bleeder for it to show up on the trail. Glad to hear the rider was ok

Please let me demonstrate the ride around; really it's no trouble.

Was he wearing a full face? Seeing that makes me want to throw some gauze and tape in my camel back.

Ain't it the truth.

Most everyone reading this has crashed after a split-second loss of concentration, though few have had as much bloodshed… or photos… or prolonged discussion on NSMB!! And here I thought having a few eyewitnesses was embarrassing! :eek2:

Good to hear he's doing okay and not too put off by it. Hope he's back on the trails before long.

Noone ever hurts themselves doing something cool. A coworker just broke his hip riding on the sidewalk!

The first time I had the courage to ride the A-Frame stunt on Natural High, I rode it without any issues… and then proceed to SLOWLY roll over the small (about 3'?) jump right after it. I'd never had any issues with the jump… until I did the A-Frame.

I endo'd and landed right on my face, and was very thankful for my full-face helmet, which suffered a broken visor.

I never ride without some basic first aid kit - even when out riding singletrail with me missus. You never know.

How true. Last summer, while still basking in the stoke of a fun ride down Espresso, we finished up with a short bonus run near the bottom. Mentally my state of mind was, hey it's just an easy blue run, pin it… so I pedalled hard and went as fast as I could. Crashed into a tree and tore my ACL on Floppy Bunny, aka "easiest trail on Fromme". Just now getting back into the game. It's always the easy ones that sneak up on you and smack you upside the head when you're not looking.

Camelback should make a bladder with an IV attachment.

I think thats what the first camelback was - an IV bag with shoulder straps
