I decided to hit that jump. It's larger than it looks. Two guys from here (Jack, and Mike???) both cased it kind of hard, but i decided to try it anyway. I went out, about half as far as they did, and pedaled my ass off. I hit the jump way to fast and overcleared the landing by a good 5'. I did an "Oh Sh*t" to face slide. I ended up with a fat gouge on the inside of my lip, and a 1" by 1/2" bone deep cut on the front of my shin. Now I'm wating for my friend to get his car so that he can take me to the doctor so that I can get it stitched up. Sorry for the lack of pics, but I don't have a camera.

jump

yeah u got the names right. The jump is weird, its not big at all, but has a long gradually steepening lip to it and you need tons of speed. Peter just went too fast (he pedaled his f**king ass off and got nose heavy). Jack says Student Health wasnt open? I thought it was open 24 hours? feel better man.

dude, you crashed so hard, did you lean forward on purpose because you would have been fine but you leaned way forward just before hitting the ground, but i'm glad to hear you are okay.

Maybe if you didn't have an anchor fit for a small boat mounted on the front of your bike you wouldn't have nosed it? :D

yeah, the jump is small. I have hit doubles with a gap three times the size of that one.
here is my reason for crashing on this little p.o.s

two guys that tried jumping it before me cased the crap out of it, and both of them got speed from much further away than i did. So i figured that if I pedal as hard as I can I should clear it nicely. There was also a strong wind from behind, so that helped me fly way over the landing.

that sucks. get better. think on the bright side though, you can still ride.
no, i can't ride. :(

I can barely walk right now, and I can't eat, cuz i can barely open my mouth far enought to slip in a straw. My jaw is fine, but I have a fat cut on the inside of my lip. Also, the vicaden(sp) they gave me isn't helping at all :mad:

today was a bad day. I spent over four hours in the ER at the local hospital wating for them to find someone that can fix my lip. I turn's out that I have to go back in tommorow in the morning to get it done
