Default I just delayed my season start.

This past weekend I was doing my last motocross race of the year and I was following a dude pretty close...I was trying to get around him for a couple laps but he had a more powerful bike. I decided to make a last corner pass and was setting him up from outside to inside when he spun out...I had 2' to react and I hit his back tire as the bike went down. I went over the bars and cut my quad on his bike as I flew past. It is a 8" cut down the quad and to the side of the knee...not pretty. Looks like a hundred stitches or so.

My season isn't going to get started until January if I'm lucky and I will be cruising this year vs trying to advance and get better in the park. I'm a bit bummed. I guess I will be living my snowboard dreams through you guys for a couple months...so do big things and document for us LAME members!

You can't describe a supposed gruesome injury and then not post pics.........

Ok, here it is but please don't look if you have kids close or are not into gruesome

About the photo, you are looking at the wound from my feet and you can see where my pants were cut. The bandage is covering the bottom 1/2 of it...I have to check my dad's camera to see if his photo got the whole thing. You are seeing around 1/2 of the total wound. It was interesting to see the muscle moving when I was trying to move my foot...especially when they were moving it around to see all the damage. It was sorta cool is a very deranged way

I'm totally guessing at the number. The doc told me he used 2. One very long one inside on the muscle and one long one of the skin. I was trying to count and it looks like 60-70 on the skin alone so I figured it was a few less on the muscle.

Yeah, I was surprised that he didn't use staples either. I don't want to second guess him though...dude was super awesome.

i think we can all agree that the moral of this story is you should buy a more powerful bike.

Hoooooly shit. I know you put a warning and I even waited a second before scrolling down any further to take a deep breath...but I was not prepared for that. Thought I was going to see an image of it stitched up or something.

I feel like we have a bond now that I've seen the INSIDE OF YOUR BODY.



Seriously though, that sucks. I hope your recovery is quick and not as painful as it looks. I've never had any injuries as gnarly as that - not even close. Haven't even broken a bone. Concussion is the most hard core I've gotten. Good luck dude. I'd be trying to rig up one of those wheel chair snowboards like on Every Third Thursday. It's a bummer the season is winding up - hopefully you get on the slopes in some capacity soon!
