Damn. Nice recovery though.

In high school a bunch of us on Ernie's/La Grange rode up to Malibu for a long club ride. While descending Latigo Canyon, my friend Chris Hobbes blew out a front tire in a fast turn and faceplanted onto the concrete. It was bad. There was blood everywhere and you could tell Chris' teeth had poked through his cheek/lip area. His head and face were all swollen too. We had to call the ambulance for that one. This was before cell phones, so one of us (I can't remember who) rode to the nearest house and knocked on the door. In the end, Chris had 200 stitches in his face and head.
