    My gf took this of a friend of ours. I think that he posts here from time to time as DHD. If you did any of the Tenney or Ragged mtn races this is the guy who organized them. I'm pretty sure that he fractured his pelvis. He raced on it and didn't realize it was hurt so bad until he got home.

    Forgot to say. I just DLed the pics w/out looking at what was on the card. Needless to say I let out a long "Hoollllyy sh!t!!!" When I saw it. It makes it all that much better when you know the victim.

    Time to buy a new bike. I mean first the thing bucks the guy off, and then it roosts him with dirt as it takes off up the trail...

    Hope he heals up quick.

    I saw Paul getting carted off. Didn't see how it happened, but I saw what I think probablt happen to him a couple of years ago. Its easy to come off of that blind roller a little nose heavy and then lose it on one of the rocks on the back side of it. Saw it unfold almost in slow-motion to a kid on a red V10 from the lift. It was scary.

    Dan didn't go down the yardsale for those assuming he did. He went down the alternate line and as he came out he got his bike (maybe pedals as well) stuck between some rocks and came to a halt still upright on his bike. He took a little breather and looked around at the crowd as if it was a trials bike and then tried hopping out and going from a stand-still through the rocks in the picture and got tossed pretty badly.

    Either way it sucks and if he is hurt, best of luck to him healing.

    IMHO, I don't think yardsale should be taken out, I just don't believe experts should be riding down it at all.


    ***Edit***

    Didn't really pay attention to that picture, but that must be from a practice run. I only saw his crash during his race run. If he raced with a fractured pelvis that's nuts!!! :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:
