You should be able to, no problem.

This is what you need to do.

Go to physiotherapy as much as you can, never miss it.
If you can find a good sports specific physiotherapist, go to that guy/girl.
There is a big difference between a sports physiotherapist & the 60 year old guy that treats your grandma for her broken hip. It's about 2 months.

Tell him you need to get back out there & to put you through the wringer.
It's gonna hurt & it ain't much fun but the more you can endure the faster you'll be back out there.

TT

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality

Hmm, I doubt a physiotherapist is able to make my arm heal faster. He will be able to help me gain strength etc again with my arm(wich I'm allowed to, since that puts pressure on the other bone and is not a short, high impact) but that doesn't speed up the process of a bone healing, does it?

I do go to a sports physiotherapist btw, been there way too much already last 2 years...

I did it with a broken hand, when I was 16, I broke part of the cast in a crash and re-injured my hand so don't do what I did. It hurt like a sonofabitch. If you're going to ride, take it easy, that's about all anyone can say.

Another thing to remember is the sweating in the cast when you ride. All casts pretty much stink but after a couple months in one while snowboarding, mine was rank.
