Emergency First Aid for Mountain Bikers
The video below is a good friend of ours (Chay Granby) taking one to the face. He is an experienced rider and races elite gravity enduro. The feature crashed on was easy for Chay, it was just a mistake. Its not pleasant, we don't aim to shock but this kind of thing does happen and it is the kind of situation we want to prepare riders for.
