It seems like the pain has dissipated after one nights rest but will continue to ice. To the poster above, it was a nasty fall. Does this mean I must being doing something wrong to get hurt wearing this much armor?

Since you really didn't describe the fall, conditions or your riding level/experience it's hard to imagine which of a 1000 type of falls you took. We have all been there !!! So we can all sympathize with your pain....

well it depends on the fall, I hurt my hip dispite padding this year but that was due to me hitting a rock that was under a thin layer of snow. Rocks > flesh. It all depends on what you were doing when you fall. Padding doesnt make you invincible.

There are ways to fall, minimizing the risk of injury.

It really is an art, keeping your momentum & using it to right yourself.

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

Very true words for sure.
Things also happen very fast and time to react and fall properly is also learned at the expense of falls like OP'er just had. Comes with the sport

It happened on a catwalk when I was carving then caught edge and flipped onto an area with hard ice.

You could just be *delicate.*

My friends started calling me "fragile" after I broke 6 bones in a little over a year. (Four of those were from one accident though. And I haven't broken any in the 4 years since then *KNOCK ON WOOD*)

Hope you keep feeling better.

I have a friend who calls me bird bones.

He's never broken a bone.
I usually break something once a year

I try & explain to him that, "you're fat & all you do is sit around, then have a nap"

He just doesn't get it?

The worst injury I've had (in terms of how much it affected my season) was a butt-plant coming off the Mystery chair when some git lost control and knocked my board out from under me. Wasn't wearing my protective shorts that particular day and the sore tailbone dogged me for the rest of the season.


Error 404. Coffee not found.
