    Here is where I blew out my knee last Wednesday...

    OK, so some pics. See the ladder on top of that rock, that's where i tumbled over, and grabbed the tree, and then fell onto the ramp.













    My new Full Sleeve Tat, with ALL of the colors.







    Seeing the surgeon tomorrow. Likely ACL and a bunch more.

    Ouch, sorry.

    Looks like it was fun until it wasn't.

    That’s the perfect summary, PD, I was having one of the best rides of my season, just crushing. It was in Austin, TX. It was the only man made feature in 20 miles of riding, total surprise.

    Yikes. Was that a mandatory gap? or could you roll it?

    Absolutely mandatory, no possibility of rolling it. It is right on a public trail, kinda dick move by the builder not putting in any warning says. If it had said “DOUBLE BLACK DIAMOND” I would have sped up. I was actually going just fast enough to clean it, but my friend panicked and yelled “STOP!” uneccesarily, which I tried to do.

    Oh no. So sorry to hear. You've been getting stronger and stronger all year. Dang. Keep us posted what the orthopod says. Was the bike ok?

    +++Vibes+++ man. You'll heal up.

    As for the feature not being marked, that is a dick move. Seems like just about everything that is even a quasi-legit trail would have some kind of signage, if even only at the beginning (TH).

    Maybe this was a side route that was rouge?

    Oh, it was 100% rogue, which I don’t really care about... just give us some warning, please!

    Yup, no question, I had my greatest cycling season in 35 years this year, so I am ok with it, I guess. I still have some big plans for next year, but more DH KOM’s and trophies are probably not happening!
    I was with a Texas friend. Bike was a rental, but it was fine.

    If you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it tubeless, I will. I got spare time.

    What makes it crazier is that I got a call from my surgeon Tuesday night because I had just had an MRI on my right knee, and it didn’t need surgery, but he recommended a knee replacement in a few years. THAT was the ‘good’ knee that I had to hop out a 10th of a mile on, and now Use with my crutches. And they only gave me 10 Tylenol 3’s.
    Fucking paranoid doctor bullshit, if anyone needed strong pain meds, I did.
    Was more than brutal, more like METAL!

    You should probably buy yourself a new bike anyway, just in case.

    Oh, yeah, it’s already at the shop, XTR bits are already in the shed, and the carbon wheels on a boat.

    No bueno. I tore my ACL last year. 4 months from date of surgery til I was cleared to ride trails (with brace) and 3 more for unrestricted activity without brace. The good news is biking is good for recovery but it will be pretty laid back pedalling for a while.

    Well, I did 95 days on the rollers between Christmas and April last year, so maybe I have beaten myself into submission already.

    Holy crap, if you wanna get in shape quick, just strap 30 lbs to your handlebars and just go for short rides around the small neighborhood hills. Even just going up my driveway left me breathless!
    For the record, she had a lot of fun once we got going at a decent speed. She was just emotionless when we were completely stopped. At least that's what I'm telling the wife!

    (first round-the-neighborhood pavement shakedown ride of the bike setup with my daughter on it ... next step is to take it off road, on mellow flattish stuff of course)
