2009 Whistler Gravity Camp


For those of you who came into the shop during September or October 2009, you’ll have noticed a gnarly scar and/or my shoulder in a sling. The gravity camp experience wasn’t exactly what I had intended as the fun of being there and riding some incredible Whistler downhill was brought to an abrupt halt when I had a truly horrendous crash.

One shattered collar bone, some broken ribs, a punctured lung, a week in a Canadian hospital, a torturous 33hr train ride from Canada back to Simi, a plate inserted into the shoulder and months off the bike later I am cleared to ride.

So I decided to post the photos I did get for you to see.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to offer a truly massive heartfelt thank you to everybody who has helped on the road to recovery. From just simple well wishes through advice through cooking through helping out at the bike shop I’d like to thank each and every one of you. Its folk like you who make coming to work a joy.
