So let me talk you through this.
I roll in. this ramp is sweet you can fly. it was last run & my schedule is tight so I didn’t know if I could come back. I wanted to feel a good invert five. I did a 540 earlier but no style… before that I was going to milk the juice for a couple variations.
Second wall you’re flying, so I was going to do a no hander to late no footer, leaving one hand off, since that feels better when you have some time, height. I did a No hander and put my right hand back on and went to take my feet off late, but when you haven’t done those in a while you have to force him off because your mind is like “why are you taking your feet off right before we are landing” but I didn’t force them off. next wall I was going to do a swingleg but I still wanted to do that last one. so I did a blank wall to get a pump for a candycan.
I did a candycan because I meant to do one at the worlds in England after talking to a rider who just learned them and pulled it in the contest. But I threw my back out and I couldn’t have another session. so It was on my mind. It felt good, but I landed a little sketchy & lost my speed, so the next variation, which I was hoping for a rebate at the NH to NF1H, scratched, but I still had the invert 540 on my mind. I trusted the lip & my speed blindly and popped it & tucked and enjoyed every bit of it until I clipped my front wheel. Now everything goes to pictures & slowmow. First I thought wow I really just clipped my front wheel on the coping… time to take it. I hit my head. it sparked but I’m still conscious. good. Then my wrist impacts. It felt the strength to break bones and I felt some crack. then my ribs hit & my wind was gone. crap I broke ribs too. I’m gonna walk away but it’s going to be hard, & that’s going to take some serious recovery time. Then the challenge is getting up and off the ramp. I like to draw as little as attention to the slam as possible & slither off to find a quiet place where no one is. which is usually underneath the ramp and just relax, try to assess what’s wrong, what you injured & breath. @xgames has a great ER medic staff with the knowledge.
