Bikes are good
I broke my clavicle last monday riding down the dome. The lower 1/2 of the trail has some nice flowing sections, and I was flowing. It also had some nice mud. The kind that lets you slide off the trail like ice. I was in the brush for about 6 ft, and then wham. I stopped moving from 20mph to 0. I'm guessing on the speed, but I was having fun. While in the air I became inverted, and tried rolling to my shoulder. The idea seemed better than landing on my face. I landed very hard, and snapped the end of my clavicle. My shoulder seemed dislocated, so I tried relocating it. After the immense pain, I decided the hospital would have to figure it out. I wrestled my bike out of the bushes and rode home, to the hospital, to the surgeon in the morning, and now I can type again. I have a nice plate connecting my collarbone chunks together. Since there is no skiing now, and riding (in the dirt anyway) is done, maybe I won't miss much of either. Anyway, be careful on mud, and that shoulder roll they always tell you about works mostly, not always.
