WIN­NER! THAT’S GOTTAHURT

Luke She eld doesn’t seem too both­ered by this “nice gory crash”! He ex­plains: “I was try­ing to bun­ny­hop a fallen tree when my rear wheel hit it hard and threw me over the bars. My knee snapped o my Hope brake lever blade, which left a sharp end that sliced me open. When I first saw the cut, I thought I’d have to stay there hold­ing it un­til some­one came to save me. But af­ter a minute or two I re­alised it wasn’t bleed­ing so much that I couldn’t take a photo! I made my own way out of the woods and my brother patched me up and took me to A&E. Four hours later and I was stitched up. I was lucky I didn’t cut any­thing too se­ri­ous, only flesh and mus­cle, and it was a nice clean cut so should heal up OK. It’s all part of the fun!”
