hey godwinmt, hope you are back on the bike soon. just wondering what sort of boots you were wearing? if you weren't wearing something like mx boots and knee guards do you think that might have prevented the break or made it less severe? just wondering because i broke my lower leg into many pieces. was getting back into dirt riding after a few years off and delayed buying mx boots as i was researching them heaps before buying. so had a fairly basic off just wearing hiking boots and bam... titanium and off my feet for four months. i think i still would have broken the leg with mx boots and knee braces, but definitely would not have shattered the leg.
