Mountain biking is not a safe sport. Strangely enough, that's seems to be part of its appeal. Ask just about any mountain biker whether they've wrecked, and a big smile will split their face as they tell you about the cuts, scrapes, bruises, and even broken bones they've endured in their pursuit of the perfect ride. We understand this form of brain damage completely.
After all, we share it.
Unfortunately, there are those who do not. If you mountain bike for long enough, whether using the information presented on this website or not, you will hurt yourself. It is an inescapable part of the sport. Most people understand and accept this simple fact. To protect ourselves from the slings and arrows of those who do not, we must state the following:
