It was all going so well.

T'was a beautiful afternoon here in Golden.
I commandeered a proto and had a fantastic ride on Dakota Ridge.

Got down to the pavement and got cocky. Thought I'd see how well the bike manualed. Ended up squirting it right out from under me like a watermelon seed.
Luckily i broke the fall with my elbow.

And landed on a seemingly innocuous pebble.

Which entered my elbow.

And tore open and extruded my bursa sac.

Which looks like this...

Skip on down if you are squeamish.


Which resulted in surgery.
