This is what happens when a peddal hits you in the face. Ouch!

... but why is he bleeding? Eye-wink

I notice the goggles and assume he was wearing full face - so how on earth did that happen!?

Chicks don't dig the Frankenstein look he's sporting in the pic though.

Thanks all for the concern and humorous comments. Laughing out loud They were much appreciated. I love you all.

The damage was more than the photo shows. I have a possible broken bone in my hand - which has been x-rayed - but no conclusion as to whether there is a hairline break or not. Also have some rotator cuff damage, and other ligament damage to my left shoulder. I will heal, and get back out there soon!

Groover, I am borderline for riding this weekend at Mt York. A physio has already told me not to ride a bike for another week. But if there is no break in my hand, I may conveniently ignore that advice. Smiling

Will be good to have you along mate.. if only to take the pi55 at your granny pace Smiling

I note you have quietly avoided telling everyone how this happened so it must be very embarrassing.

Who else was there? Come on and dish the dirt! Sticking out tongue

No, simply forgot. Eye-wink

Stacked after one of the drops on Oxford Falls, where there is a small jump with a turn in the middle of it. Simply got the approach a bit wrong, then couldn't really control the landing. More a lack of concentration, or skill. Lee saw it. He was cool and provided the appropriate first aid. What a champ. Cool

I was not wearing the goggles, but was wearing a full face helmet. Sometimes I find it easier to ride without the goggles. Normally this should not have been a problem jump - I have done it dozens of times in the past. Live and learn, I guess. Smiling

Love that quote. How's the helmet?

No issues with the helmet. It wasn't a fast stack.
