I did this two days ago. I just stepped off the sled and blipped the gas to keep from getting stuck. Bad part is the sled was sitting at a pretty good angle at the time and I ended up stepping onto the spinning track.

So as my foot got spun around, my toe went between the track and rear wheel. Then my foot shot up into the tunnel for a little more beating. Of course I kept riding on it for 3-4 more hours. If I ignore the pain, it'll go away, right? NOT.

The toenail is completely separated from the nailbed. And it's been bleeding heavily for the last two days. I'm gonna lose the nail for sure.

But it was a great ride.

Your supposed to wear boots while riding.
J/K

I couldn't see my boots getting caught in anything like that, cause they are so darn big.

Steel toes boots might not be a bad idea.

OK- just to clarify, I was not completely barefoot when this happened. Sheesh. That's even a little hardcore for us crazy Alaskans.


I was wearing socks, OK. ... Really thick socks.


(oh yeah, and a pair of Trukk boots)


The boots look fine- just a little scuff mark over (go figure) the toe area.

So I'll just have to add this to the "things I learned while riding" list (which gets longer every time I ride) and keep on riding. I suppose if I ever quit adding to the list, I've mastered the sport and need to move on to something else. I just wish it wasn't so painful to add something new...

In the mean time, I get to kick back and have a couple of
while my foot heals.

Keep on riding-
