Play with emotion. Playing with all technique and no emotion makes you boring. And most importantly, Make faces while bending.

It would totally freak me out to have a broken leg.

Have any of you guys suffered any broken bones ??

Many years ago when I was young I used to do cat 1 road cycle races. Racing and cars doesn't mix well so I've had various bones broke. I once had my knee pulped when a car driver opened her door and I hit it hard at speed with my knee. It also shoved my fibula up in to my nee cap and out through the back of my leg. My fibula has popped out a couple of times since even when it isnn't stressed.

It's pretty common for road race cyclists to finish races with disolocated and broken bones often sustained 10s of km before the end. I always remember the 1987 Tour de France when Herrera crashed down a ravine on a descent in the Pyrinies. He climbed back up and got hit by a team car as he was getting on his bike. He finished the stage. If you check the 2011 TdF news you'll also find the story of a TeamSky rider who was hit by a TV camera car...

I've broken my foot, two toes and my clavicle. All in different incidents and all in Motorcycle Accidents. (None of which were my fault!!)

Oh man that's one tough dude. I've broken two both playing Rugby, broke my jaw when I was 19 making a tackle and now I've got a plate in there and the other was almost 2 years ago when I got spear tackled and smashed my collar bone into 4 pieces that's been put back together and now has a plate running the length of my clavicle with 6 screws holding it together, so I'm full of metal laugh.gif . The last one was the deciding factor in forcing me to retire from the game, not so easy to recover with 2 kids and a full time job. tongue.gif
