My riding friend of 12 years and I were riding Spider Berm today (monday) and about 50 yards from the end he clipped a tree with the tip of his bar and was sent into another... long story short, He broke his left ankle when he planted his foot but his body kept turning...
This is about all we could figure happened, He didn't hit the ground, rock or tree, and he didn't have a scratch on him, Just a broken ankle... It was definitely broken, His foot was almost pointed backwards.
It took about 2 hours for rescue to get there, They did a great job organizing and expediting the rescue, Thank you guys and gals.
He is in great spirits and kept the rescue group entertained through out it all.
He is being prepped for surgery as I type this. He is a great riding friend, I hope his wife lets us play again when he's better.
The part that kills him the most was... It was Spider Berm!, Not Pandemonium, Not Big Drop - Spider Berm, a warm up trail!.
