This past Sunday I went riding at a huge field by my house. I didnt wear my chest protector (mistake #1) because I wasnt riding any tracks I didnt think I needed it. As you circle the field (big laps) there are a couple of plateau jumps. This particular jump I didnt bother to check to make sure the landing was clear (mistake #2), well needless to say it wasnt. We've had so much rain that the ground had wash away and I landed in a big hole about 3 feet deep and came to a instant stop and my upper body hit the bars. Well with no chest protector on I broke a couple of ribs and punctured a lung! I have to have more X-rays done tomarrow to see if my lung is getting worse, if so I'll have to be admitted into the Hospital for God knows what! Right now I'm drugged up and still hurrt like hell and I'm gonna be out of work for at least a week and the Dr says my ribs will hurt for probably a month. Always work your chest protector and know your landing!!!!!
