Best wishes to Cory

Cory over at Making it Easier Stacked it the other day. Looks to be minimal injuries thankfully

But I love this description:
I nosed in really hard on a fifteen foot gap jump

From what it sounds like this is was a pretty routine trail for a rider of his caliber. It just highlights the relative wide range of skill sets and what is considered easy or hard.

I crash while clipping-in on a gravel parking lot. It's all relative.

Cory had a great comment at a post at Go clipless regarding a guy that STACKED HARD on a major huge gap jump (watch this movie and cringe). Well said from someone that lives/breathes the free ride world. There is no shame in knowing when to walk something.

Thanks for the kind words Ashwin. I'm not yet sure about the full extent of my injuries -- there's a bunch of swelling around my neck and upper back -- but I can say with confidence that it was the worst crash I've had (and I've had some bike-breaking bad ones in my day).

I'm expecting that the medics will confirm that I have a separated shoulder in addition to any muscle damage that might have occurred.

I'll keep everyone who's interested up to date on my site -- this episode won't keep me from riding, but it'll probably keep me honest. For a while.
