I missed this trip but my usual riding bunch had a man and sled down.

They were riding down an unplowed road when the lead guy hit a snowbank at 100mph+.

He's lucky to be alive, torn spleen, broken/bruised ribs, broken shoulder blade.

He can barely walk with all the bruises on his ass and legs.

The sled ended up almost 100 yards from where he launched.




















2 days in the hospital and a ticket for excessive speed.

How does one hit a snowbank?

It's not like they move...

How'd it happen?

But seriously....that looks pretty bad. If you didn't say it was a sled I wouldn't have know what it was. Hopefully your friend will be back up and around soon.

It happened in Munising a few days ago.

As I was told,

They headed off the trail on to roads because some of the old guys were bitching about the rough trails.

Trail Boss on the Polio 900 was heading down an "unplowed" road when he hit a bank where the plows gone down then turned around.

It was at night and he had it pinned, the snow bank was 4' tall. Very hard to see at 100+.

He has a place up there and has been riding that area forever.

He is a great dude, I saw him tonight he was in good spirits.
