Share pics of our favourite crash test dummy

None takes a tumble more often than he. ;)
But he never gives up and he keeps coming back for more. ;D

here's to the_wes; a guy who doesn't mind falling and simply gets up to fall some more.
respect to the man who picks gravel out of his teeth so he can grin sheepishly once again

where next for the_wes?

LS, not to take away from Wes who is obviously the fallKing :evil: , why dont you rename to something like "Post your wipeout pics"? I have a couple of myself which I can upload and I am sure a lot of others will post theirs too.

He's even good at getting other people to make him fall.

Lito riding like a prick crashed into him here, giving him a really sore shin injury;

I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)

I wanna see Mark Hardy's sequence of shots where Wes got airborne, and then decided it's too high for him, he's climbing off now... :ricky:

I was wondering if anyone, who's done a fair amount of riding, hasn't had a wipeout resulting in treatment being needed to either bike or body??

Or, perhaps - is there anyone who thinks this will never happen to them?
