    It definitely did everything BUT jump over the stump...

    Actually I lost traction went over the handle bars and drilled the side of my head into a stump... Head bounced right off of it... Helmets are no good when you hit below them....


    My head hurts... alot

    Cuz they couldn't get away with "Hooker"?


    Sorry about your fall, hope you heal fast. Did you have a concussion?

    Nope, no problem jumping stumps, but need i remind you of it's attraction to the outside line of jumps and it's attraction to rocks? :biggrin:
