Oh geeze…got a few "stupid ones" …although the first 2 youngster ones were more ignorance, didn't know any better :)
So I'm a little kid and about to learn that sand on concrete = ice as I come into the corner as fast as I can on the bmx…roadrash city!
'member those motobike inspired bicycles with the steel coil springs front and back? I figure it'll make the landing super cushy so I go way, WAY up the hill, further than anyone has ever started before to get a run at the big jump into the bmx track…the rebound off the face of the jump puts me into a backflip kinda thing that didn't go well
Grade8…a sorta fence, steel posts with chain draped between them at about knee height (my first time into this one area)…as I approach, the grey chain is perfectly camouflaged against the concrete background…yup, that went well…rode straight into it
Riding along on the 10spd…a twig or something down in the front, reach for it, hit a bump and my hand goes fully into the spokes and insta-slam…was winter, thick gloves on…my hand was fine, don't recall the rest
Riding uphill along a residential street…gotta check the rear derailleur, yup, I have a few seconds to look down…SPLAT, sprawled out on the back of a hatchback, taco wheel (related…my Mom gets a call from Dad to come pick him up, his wheel is taco aswell…he rode into the back of the ONLY car parked on the side of a 5km long straight section of hwy)
Rosehill sand drop…had done it a billion times…come in lazy…over the bar and snap my wrist damn near clean off against a rock
WTF inspires people to pop a wheelie the first time out in clips? Yup, did that…:lol:
