Logs: 1 - Me: 0

1383719 10101340863680606 399956056 n

I saw these logs as a fun little challenge during a race. Little did I know that I would end up unconscious afterwards. I have been practicing single logs and catching air off them. What I haven't ever tried was to clear a gap off of a log. Why not try it during a race? I eye balled it briefly during practice and thought I was more than capable to give it a go during the race.

I did clear the second log...I just have to work on sticking the landing. From watching the video it appears I was knocked out for about a minute. I did finish the lap and started another, but my riding buddy and general voice of reason, pulled off and suggested that we call it a race.

I got pretty bruised up in the upper body and right leg and and I can't say that my head has fully cleared up. It was tough going home to the 6+ month pregnant wife. Let's just say that she didn't appreciate the challenge as much as I did.

Actually, no I didn't remember. He turned it from RES to ON, so I lucked out. I wouldn't have been in the mood for the bike to act up.

Ouch! Yeah rubbery is a good way to describe it. You were out of it for a second there. Hate watching that stuff. Glad you are alright. My wife gets every time I get hurt because it just makes more work for her. LOL.

Not laughing at you getting banged up....must have been a helluva dream you were having.

Last time I slammed my head into a tree, I was dreaming about riding a BMX and eating a landing, only I was on a 640 LC4.....

I am one of those that remember everything when (right before/after) I get knocked the out.
