I know weve all had those close calls that after the crash you think oh sh*t if something happend diffrent I would be screwed.Post your close calls and pics if you have them. My worst one was when I was flying down a trail in my backyard my front wheel locked up in between 2 rocks. I got sent over the bars with no helmet. My shoulder slammed into a tree and the bike flew back and hit me. If I had been thrown about 3 inches farther I proably would have broken my neck on the tree.

Three mountain goats -and- four elk all charged at me from different directions. Extremely weird. None hit me or each other.

Some redneck fired his hand gun as he drove towards me. He was not that close, so I can't be sure he was aiming at me, but there was nothing else around.

I have no idea where I am
Getting shot at is no fun!

It's happened a few times. Some inbred, drunk rednecks used to fire over our heads when we practicing for a dual slalom race. We would have to duck down behind a berm until the shooting stopped.
