Thats actually a worth while article, learning how to crash is very important. Back in the old skating days you learnt how to fall and not hurt yourself (as much), so that you could keep on going and push yourself harder.

I laughed at first but on reflection Buzz is right. Was watching The Real A&E earlier where a mountain biker went over the bars landing on first his hands then head and slammed strait onto his back, breaking one wrist and dislocating the other. Every time (with the exception of Afan) i go over the bars i always seem to land on my forearms and tuck my head down and roll onto my back, as against slamming onto the ground. It's happened a few times now and never had any injuries as a result, except Afan of course :Smile

Yeah yeah. I think I should actually be known for my ability to become injured rather than fall off actually. I dont fall off very often. But when I do I seem to snap.

And yes that article on Bikeradar is pointless. Who has time to put a learned plan into practice as they stack their bike? I dont even remember my big crash!

Yeah actually quite good and sensible... but would be hard to remember mid-crash.

There are often other priorities as well like when I was in mid crash at Fowlmead I was 100% busy telling the rider next to me what a **** he was and what I thought about his mother
