i'm in the process of cleaning up my machine a little bit and found this old picture of me taken the day after a rather nasty mountain bike spill. from what i can tell, this was in march of 2001. i remember the crash clearly and my slowly swelling face and blacking eye. i even remember the pain...i couldn't move my mouth on one side for days. amazing that i still love mountain biking...but i'll tell you now that whenever i ride that trail, i WALK that spot. it got the best of me and i don't care to ever try and overcome that fear.
