Madmax's mishap, or how not to take corners when there's loose gravel!

Mark looks like he's been on a pretty severe diet but in actual fact on close inspection you can see his collar bone has managed to detach its self from whatever the other bones name is that it should be fixed to! This was as a result of an attempt by Mark to take a corner at high speed on a level tarred path without noticing that there was a fair bit of loose gravel. To say he went down like a ton of bricks would be the understatement of the year and the only saving grace was the fact that he'd put on his knee pads beforehand or the injuries would have been worse! The ride to Glenterss was aborted and instead there was a visit to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary where he was x-rayed and given the bad news about his shoulder. On the plus side he got a natty blue sling to rest his arm in. I'm sure he'll be back out on the bike before long, madder than ever.....
This photo was taken just after he "bit the dust" so to speak and the full extent of his injury wasn't apparent, close inspection of his left knee pad shows that it could have been worse (but not much)!
