Snapped my kickstand
I broke my leg Friday night.
we have a new mega ramp that was finished two hours before i got there
About an hour into the session I dropped into the normal part of the ramp and pushed as hard as i could to get near to the speed, i did this 5-6 times...
I would get up on the roll-in. when i was good and ready, eventually i went up to the top of the roll-in. once you are up there you look a complete twat if you get down off it the steps way.
Several skaters had done it during the first few hours. So with Zak and Reece shouting "do it Trawler". I let go off the top after hesitating for about 30 secs.
I must of speed wobbled through the flat as i didnt have a spanner to tighten my loose trucks. My back foot must have gripped the new wood. then in a split second i was sliding backwards down the transition on my back. Both legs in view with one having a bone sticking out through my long tube socks..I clamped my leg on the flat bottom to stop the blood a bit.
Part of the operation involved getting the tube sock out of the leg because the bone had eaten it back into the wound. . Gas and air and lovely morphine will not make the bumpy farm track ambulance ride out of Mount Hawke any better.
Today i am at home after gettin discharged last night. i can put light weight on it already and i am getting used to crutches. It smarts a bit though!
I reckon it will mend good. I wanna ride my bike.
