Mountain Biker Exposes Ankle Bones

Mountain Biker Exposes Ankle Bones

Remember the tough guy with the partially severed foot?

Here is another to add to the family of folk who break skin instead of bone.

The story with this guy is that apparently he was mountain biking and took a heavy landing with his foot on the pedal. It would appear his leg has overtaken his foot, and given that bone is stronger than skin, he has peeled like a banana.

I used to mountain bike when I was younger and this type of injury never occurred to me. I was always more concerned with becoming one with a tree or loosing parts of my face in the gravel.

Mountain bike guy wasn’t quite as stoic as our tough guy though. In the photo above you can see a medico holding him down while he is examined. I’m not afraid to admit I’d be like mountain bike guy in the same situation.

    1. I have a similar story… Was 10 at the time, just got one of those fancy huffy bikes… Was showing off, popping wheelies and using a jump ramp my neighbor has made. Was trying to impress this girl that I knew, ended up making a jump, crashing down between my legs, busted my nuts and cried… Last time I try impressing anyone.

    1. ofcourse we need to spend more time in nature. Its beautiful art to experience.
      But only danger in forest tracks are the TICKS. But we wear helmet. Then its no problem. but it is again when we take our clothes off
