Racing at Sacramento cross country district 36. Raining, entry level boots,boot slipped on peg caught mound ,hyperextends backwards breaks ankle and foot peg tries to come through bottom of boot.. Results OUCH! 4-5 months no riding. Better boots probably would have not been so bad or even at all?

That sucks! Good luck on healing. Since they were not able to stabilize the third foot bone, I would think it will take a while for it to be strong enough to handle the abuse of off-road.

OH MY! I am sorry to hear that!

Hopefully it is just a broken ankle and broken foot, not a broken spirit. Hang in there and if you go to rehab, do every single thing they say and just how they say it.

Heal up, and take it easy.

If you are able to find time, read up on bike maintenance, gear, whatever to remind you of what you can do again one day.
Thank you Julien D for all your hard work!

I second the "obey the rehab" people. In my experience, they know exactly what there doing.

Hang in there & take as few pain killers as possible, all there good for is constipation. :please:
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Thanks all. Off the meds and out of the cast, just waiting to get rid of the walking boot. Can't wait to get back out on the bike.

Your ankle x-ray looks very similar to mine. Mx crash where i landed on the inside of my foot which shoved my foot over breaking off the ankle bone, all sith mx boots on. To regain mobility absolutely do all the rehab exercises. I did mine and have about 95% mobility but know a guy who had a similar injury, didn't do anything and ended up about 50% with a limp. Heal up, get strong and go ripping!

Hang in there, you'll be back. I had a bad crash 2 years ago, broke my pelvis in 5 spots and broke my thumb! I was 57 then, did the rehab and am back on the trails loving every minute of it!

May I suggest a higher quality boot? I mean you don't want to do this again right?
