dude sorry for your accident man. i was tailing right behind you in the C group after all the rain stopped. 3/4th of all the people left so i was going to do back to back sessions to get my moneys worth. then the noobs that feel like the need the whooooole track pushed you right off to the outside. That was some fancy pasture ski'in. and you almost had it till the last 10 miles per hour. i was upset cause i was 20 yards behind you and wanted some since i didnt get to tangle with many people the whole day. but thack your alright and your bike isnt a crushed coke can.

I'm glad you're ok. I remember when me & Tim first got together and started riding bikes with him he told me, if we ever go down try to slide not tumble. Well we did go down and I slid my A$$ off and in slow motion I could see him tumbling away behind me. There is no right way to crash, but I'm glad you did it without injury.

Looks fine James, I wouldn't even fix it. Just wash the soil sample out (and properly package it for A&M).

:laughing6 i'm gonna leave it as is, without the dirt and grass, my helmet has grass in it too, looks like i got a feather in ma helmet..:icon_bigg
