My friend Chloe Green, who is a fairly good freestyler, was learning how to ride boardercross at the Hemel Hempstead snowdome. She didn’t suck her legs in enough when going over three consecutive rollers, and caught an edge. She took the full impact of the icy course with her right shoulder before flipping some more and hitting her head, which knocked her out briefly. Chloe has now had surgery and is the proud owner of a plate and pins, plus a gorgeous scar.
