As I get wrapped up in a cast, and see a 6 week (minimum) hole in my training and racing schedule, I can't help but to think that my most recent injury could have been avoided by better technique and position.....read my tale and let me know if this injury was just bad luck or an combination of bad technique and position. I am a vet rider in b class. I have been competing for a year, and ride at least Twice a week on a track. I was invited to try the new (and not yet open to the public) nitro city motocross track in panama (country with the canal) so I jumped at the chance. While riding with a better rider to get an idea for speeds and jumps, I case a camel back jump. I recognize in the air that I am going to case it and grip hard with my knees.....no problem. I have cased jumps a lot worse ( I think), Well then I land, it seems that my foot (dainty size 13) is hanging down a bit too far and strikes the dirt (first injury) Forward momentum carries the bike forward, with the peg pushing against the sole of my boot with the toe on the ground (second injury). I have read that when landing from a jump you should have the peg under the ankle (versus on the ball of your foot). However, in this position if you are standing up and leaning forward this places your foot into the position that mine was, which has the front part of your foot angled down into a potential danger zone. Has this happened to anyone else? Is this just the result of being big (6'5") and having too much foot flopping around? Should I ride/land with the ball of my foot on the peg? What can I do in the future to avoid this type of injury?
