there's a re-direct in the polo sub-forum to this, but it'll only be there for one week.

Snapped chain on a bmx:
http://www.trials-forum.co.uk/forum/...1760_30580.jpg
The lump of gravel came out of that dark bit about 48 hours after I stacked it.

95% of the ligaments torn (held together by 5%) and broken ankle after slipping out footjamming on a wet coping:

A week later:
http://www.trials-forum.co.uk/forum/...1839_24385.jpg

I've done loads of others too: Dislocated sholdure and broken collar bone after hooking up on a 22ft hip. Broke both kneecaps and impact fracture on my right fore-arm after catching my front wheel on concrete vert. Broke my arm in 6 places between my wrist and my elbow after sliding out on gravel on a long board.
I don't ride bmx anymore, I grew up :(

Perhaps the greatest toll that polo takes on the players is a mental one. You see them walking round in a daze, unable even to remember what it is they are doing or what the strange club-like implements they are holding are for.

I mean, it depends. If not for some pictures I can find online, I wouldn't know how certain bikes look. Also, it's good to have the point of reference when gathering components etc.
It's not all about the vanity.

I'd say 'always wear a helmet' but its more a case of 'don't go blundering out of a side junction while out of your face on smack and take out a cyclist'. Actually, if you do the latter, the police don't give you such a hard time as when you get taken out while not wearing a helmet. Its a funny old world.

It was a dislocation but it's not ok actually; permanently swollen, sore and disfigured. Which is I have lawyers pursuing a case against my ex-employer's insurance.

if it's any consolation i had my middle finger on my right hand swollen for over a year, after a boxing accident. The joint squeaked the entire time from the fluid in the joint. Took a damn age to get better, it's still not right.

It's about as good now as it ever will be; I can make a fist, bend it that way but not straighten in out completely. And my dreams of being a hand-model are over.

I'm so sorry, Will. My mate's sister is a one-time hand-model. During her brief career, she plunged coffee cafetières for a famous coffee cafetière company. To think, she could been your break in the industry...

But really, that's shit. Good luck with the claim.

Imagine being a hand model... Fair ego shot.

^^ Had 55 stitches in my head & face (i got the doctor to count them!) and a fractured vertebrae but have since made a full recovery. Well, mostly. Twinges and stuff but considering the damage... Got a sweet ti frame out as compensation. Almost made it worth it.
