This crash left me with compression fractures in my T5, T6, and T7 Vertebrae. Somehow i didnt feel anything so i finished the race, even passed the guy who hit me.

About a month later i fell funny on my ribs playing hockey, when I got them xrayed they told me it was just bruising but i had half healed fractures in my back.

Dude your so lucky. I can relate though. 7 years ago I was riding a 4th gear wheelie across a soccer field and when I set the front down and touched the rear breaks the ass slid out. As I was sliding I hit the burm sideways and it tossed me into a tree back first. Fractured L2&L3 and bruised and lacerated a kidney. I got up and rode the 30 minutes home through the woods because it didn't hurt.

Good to see you're ok.After a crash there's a huge adrenaline rush and you don't normaly feel the pain until after you're home on the sofa,but I never heard of someone feeling it a whole mouth later lol.
