    Today I was hitting some dirtjumps and cased really bad. It was weird because right before I crashed I thought about what I was going to have for dinner, It's really stupid but post what goes through your head the moment before you crash.(normally I think "**** its going to hurt")

    Just the thought of him makes the pain not as bad when I case, cut open my sack on my seat, rip open my leg with a chain ring and catch the clap from Hacksaw's dirt work.
    Yes, its that good and terrible to think of him sans pants.

    I'm usually thinking "Splat better have his camera out for this." Of course my worst crash ever, he was right there with his camera and didn't take a pic. :disgust1:

    On my first big crash as I was flying through the air I had only one thought that kept repeating it self over and over "I should be wearing a helmet" Now I wear a helmet and I think "This is going to hurt"

    Usu. I'm enough in the moment that I'm not thinking, I'm acting. Hit, roll, sometimes try to catch the bike as it goes by...

    Usually I just think about what I could have done to not crash, and then its the thinking about how much its going to hurt.

    I normally say in my head in the little kid who knows hes going to be in trouble "Uh oh!" or the classic "Oh Shi" (the second word is interrupted by me hitting the ground or whatever I may be crashing into).

    "Man this sport is stupid! I should climb more, I never hit ground climbing. Am I still in the air? Crap, what does a broken bone feel like? I donna wanna pay a co-pay. Why that's at least worth a few bottles of wine. Man this sport is stupid. Tuck and roll, tuck and roll...oh oh arms out arms out! CRAP!.........oh yeah that's what a broken bone feels like."
