I fell off my sled last night. Hit a big dirt clod and rocked the sled up on its side doin 40 or so. i was on one knee when i hit so i just rolled off. I ended up disslocating my right shoulder and fracturing my wrist. The sled came back down on its skis and rolled to a stop haha. So im out of commision for a couple weeks. O well stuff happens.

I've done the same thing at about 65 and boy did it hurt. I didn't actually get any injuries other than bruises, some sore muscles, and a damaged pride. Hope you get better soon!

^^^Exactly. Looking at some of the disked fields around here, we're going to need 3 feet of snow just to make it safe!

Hope you fell better fast. Be careful out there guys.

did the exact same thing this weekend hit a dirt clog and threw me off doing about 40. I got lucky and just rolled a little bit and got back up and chased after the sled as it rolled to a stop. Theres only about 2 inches of snow here so its kinda tough to find good riding. glad to hear you didnt get hurt toooooo bad.

I know the feeling. I did about the same thing, but I broke my left thumb.

Nope no tekvest i might have to look into one tho. The ballz of it is were suposed to get even more snow this weekend. Were ina winter storm watch already. I might have to dope myself up on codeen s/p? and tape the bejesus outa my wrist and see if i can go for a light cruise. The doc said I might have a torn cuff if my shoulder dont feel better in ten days I have to get an mri. But it feels alot better already so idk
