Ya just gotta remember whats important. Dont get caught in the moment. Living to ride another day is more important to me then hitting that jump, or making that pass. If its too close to call, err on the side of safety the majority of the time.

Ill gladly give up 5 seconds here and there by being conservative instead of losing 5 months here and there by serious injuries.

Not everyone agrees but thats how i approach it now. Time on the bike instead of crutches and the couch.

I agree. Past week I have taken a few hard spills. This one being a huge one. I was lucky enough to just face should finger slide and not have to bail.

When I went over I went to scrub didn't get it in time so didn't commit. Which was fine. But with so much speed I over shot went off line up shifted landed perfect but a little off camber. Not on throttle and it was done. At least I placed though. I'm out for awhile now and when I come back I am going to take it easy. No more go big. Now I have to miss work etc.. never a good deal. But... it was fun. Got a hell of a throb and shoulder is real sore and rash but hell. Bet the fans enjoyed my get up and go!

I race but, i know im not going anywhere in the sport. So just try to keep it fun and live to ride another day. I am constantly trying to improve and push myself so its a bit of a balance act.

I don't race anymore, but if I did I would be the jambcar!

Yup, see how many guys you could keep behind you.

Lmbo.

You know, get to a steep hill and just stop when you get to the top and set there.

Lol

Just joking!

What's funny is when I was racing C I had a guy do that and I just got into c and ran him over. He nor I finished the race. Wasn't funny then as I was looking to fight. But now it is hilarious... no one was hurt.

Now I push way to hard to prove to no one but myself. And I'm a hard trainer on myself!
