-Broken ankle (June 24 '00)

the broken tailbone happened last year to this day it hurts like hell. after about 10 miles of rideing if feels like it still broken. i wish i could find a way to put my round donute on my bike. reading about all of your guys broken bones it sounds like im not rideing hard enough.

As for me, I've never been hurt riding MX, mainly because I've never ridden MX. I've never gotten seriously hurt in a race, but here is my list of riding injuries, compiled in only 3 years:
Broken wrist (radius, schaphoid, ulna, screws & pins etc.)
Broken Collarbone (Concussion on the side)
Broken Shoulder Blade.
Separated Shoulder (tied w/ wrist as hardest to get over, nasty crash). (Concussion on the side)
Hernia (5th gear loopout, KX500)
Broken nose, broken cheek, 20 stitches in my eyelid (no local, that stings), concussion on the side, memory loss, short nap.
Concussion ala carte w/ Amnesia/loss of conciousness on top.
I look to be about avg. here. It feels good to belong.....
