    I'm at home playing hookie today. I woke up with a kink in my neck, soooooooooo /forums/images/icons/wink.gif Anyway, I'm watching the X Games bmx downhill. I used to race in a 31-36 cruiser class, and these guys are INSANE. I'd rather try a back jump on a motorcycle than race downhill. Thses guys are launching 40 ft. doubles. They rock the box!!!

    I loved racing til I got some clipless pedals, then the sheeit hit the fan. I fractured my tailbone in one heat and the next open class heat race (adreniline rocks /forums/images/icons/grin.gif )I wrecked and busted my collarbone into a 1/2 dozen pieces. I almost decided to race again 4 weeks later til I saw my main nemesis crash and break 3 vertebrae. I hung up the bike that next morning. I still ride for fun tho.
