A bit of a crash

Postby unquestioned » Tue Jun 11, 2013 21:24 pm

Local trails (sorta, I work there, still an hour from my home) Pretty easy stuff, there are a couple of random bits like this though. Messing around last night & I went down this steep slope, not really a piece of the trail but looked fun, then my friend tried, results are below.

It's steeper than it appears, he was fine, sprained his ankle, bent the rear mech hanger though so he had to walk it back to the car.

This is how it looks from the top Image

looks steeper then I thought in the video. not sure I would attempt it without some body armour thou.
I like my ribs and arms and legs to generally remain un broken

Elbow & knee pads suffice, doing stuff like that adds a bit of fun to what can be a bit of a dull ride.
