Also had a tree jump out in front of me after landing a drop. Hit it so hard sheered off my brake lines and shift cables. I dodged to the side a bit but leg took a massive hit. Bruised from groin to knee so bad that i had a pool of blood under the skin that had to grow out over several months.
Then met this amazing Mt. bike woman with the matching bruise on other leg. Figured it was a sign so i married her.
