Smashed Garmin

Broken Garmin
Smashed Garmin

I was mountain biking today at the mouth of Slate Canyon and decided to open up my rear shock after I had started down the hill. I only made it several yards one handed when I hit a rock, locked my front brake (while trying to hold on) and went over the front. I bruised my hand but other than that I rolled nicely out of it. My bike survived as well because it landed on my Garmin Forerunner 305.

The most amazing part is I connected it to the base and synced it to the Garmin Training Center and it uploaded my ride until the moment of the crash. I can only guess that had I turned the Forerunner back on, it would have recorded the rest of the ride.
