    Oh Dang! Beech is in Hospital - MTB Crash

    Just saw this on Facebook. @Sombeech bites the dust Mountain Biking in Arizona.

    From Terry: Sooooo.... Our awesome day of bike riding ended with Justin's front quick release failing and Justin face planting it in the dirt. Incoherent for 30 minutes. I called 911 the second it happened. The best ride was the ambulance ride! Right! Still at the hospital!

    The ironic thing is that Beech is usually on the other end of the camera in these situations. Including when I broke my wrist and tons of other peoples crashes. I wonder if he has helmetcam footage.

    holy shit man. glad you are relatively okay. i had the exact same thing happen to me in 7th grade. busted out all of my front teeth when my face pounded into the ground after i went off a jump and my front tire continued on down the road... no one is sure how i didn't get a concussion or worse. and i wasn't wearing a helmet. scary stuff.

    best wishes on a speedy recovery.

    Here's me with NO idea where I am, how I got there, what the hell happened. I was puzzled at what I'm doing in Arizona.

    I wish! They didn't give me jack squat except for some friendly advice to take Ibuprofren. Sheesh, what the hell does a guy hafta do to manage some pain.

    thanks everybody for the concerns. The crash happened at 5 pm today and I left the hospital at 8 pm. I got my first ride in an ambulance, YAY!

    I've just got a minor headache and a handful of scrapes and bruises. I'm grateful it is "No Shave November" and my beard probably saved a little bit more skin. My wife will wake me up a couple of times tonight just to make sure my head is feeling ok. The main scare was a brain or neck injury.

    Oh and special note, I think it's a year ago to the date that @glasscutter (Mark) had his rough accident in St George, 7 broken ribs and clavicle.... On this same bike!

    It's still a great bike though, here's what happened... I took the wheels off to pack it in the van for the trip down here. I failed miserably to put the front wheel back on tight enough I guess. Funny thing is, this comes at the end of @10 miles of riding today.

    Anyways, here are some pics for your viewing pleasure.

    Brutal!! Glad you are up and moving.
    Don't talk unless you can improve the silence.
    The trout do not rise in the cemetery, so you better do your fishing while you are still alive. SGH

    Wow.
    I love the end of the interview vid when you ask if you were filming. Priority is in the right place.

    Speedy recovery.
