One day many years ago I was racing Jeff Ward and JM Bayle in Europe. We had a titanic battle for first, roosting each other, block passing, elbows. On the last lap there was this huge, 400 yard flat uphill run and I had it pegged in 5th, when all of a sudden Wardy pummled me from behind. The handlebars started swapping and I was in a MAJOR tank slapper. I shot over the berm and rammed Bayles Factory Honda trailer so hard that it..........woke me up! I was wrecked, what a dream!

Sorry 'bout that humor.. I just got back into riding late last year, have not had any major wrecks....yet! A few slow motion saves but that's it. Going back a few years, the worst I can recall is heading up the face of a table top jump and the guy next to me shoulder charged me (accident) which sent me sideways up the face of the jump at an angle. I went straight up, off the side of the jump with not much forward speed and just dropped about 20 feet onto flat, hardpacked ground. Everything bottomed out, including my....twig and berries. I squeaked for a few days after!

My worst wreck so far is the one that happened most recently. It was my first race to ever enter on the third lap. I was comfortably in 5th place with 4th and 3rd in my sights and ready to make a move. I almost had them in the corner before a 60ft triple that I had attempted once or twice but not cleared. I carried so much more speed out of the corner than I had in practice that I was sure I could clear it and clinch 3rd and move on to 2nd. Well I didn't clear it, instead as soon as I took off a huge gust of wind caught me in mid air and whipped my bike sideways. My front wheel landed right on the upface of the landing with my rearend pretty whipped out. The force of the landing completely bottomed my suspension and upon rebound I highsided down the landing which was a good 30 ft down and rolled the whole way. I jumped up, my left knee was in terribly pain. Before the medics even made it to me I knew I was done for so I just started my bike back up and rode back to the pits. Found out 3 weeks later after getting 2 opinions that I had bruised the bone in my left knee but not actually torn or injured anything else. I'm off the bike for at least 3 more weeks wearing a knee brace to keep my knee from bending into strange positions that cause unimaginable amounts of pain. I wish I had a copy of the MRI that shows a spiderweb like bruise running through the bone of my left leg.
