I was racing mr XR600 in the British Dirt Track Championship at Swindon and had to avoid a rider throttling off for a yellow flag incident ahead and ended up laying it down into the fence! Thought I'd got away with it but after pushing the bike off my foot it was kinda flopping about in the wrong direction so I just layed back down and waited for the medic! The paramedics and promoters were awesome and looked after me really well, got a titanium alloy nail in my right shin now and getting about ok. The bike was fine.
If I had decent boots instead of cheap speedway boots with no armour I reckon I'd have walked away.. Live and learn.
Anyway, thought you'd enjoy the animation my brother made of the crash pics!
UPDATE: Jamie needs to buy himself a Broke Bone Patch. Good well soon Jamie. Chicks dig scars. G
