I was just thinking, has anyone died in a unicycle related accident? I’ve seen lots of pretty bad wrecks and all, but nothing anymore serious then a broken bone or more.
As far as i know, there hasn’t been anything unicycle related deaths, which is really good in my opinion =p but if anyone out there knows of one or two, please tell, or say what you think about it.
Some of the stuff I’ve seen, mainly Kris riding on skinnies, if you fell, the chances of death are very high, or some of the drops from doing trials, land those wrong and you can seriously injure yourself So lets see what all you have to say about this =p
If I recall, when this thread came up before, even the inestimable John “God of Unicycling” Foss hadn’t heard of a uni-related death that anyone could corroborate.
I’m always telling people that I don’t want to go down in history as the first uni death. For that matter, I don’t want to be the second, third, and so on.
I have a bad feeling that a uni-related death isn’t too far away due to the amazing (and terrifying) things people now attempt on unicycles. I have the same dread that California isn’t going to be around too much longer in its current geographical state due to the San Andreas fault.
So John Foss could be the first person to die while unicycling if he happens to be riding when the ‘Big One’ hits. Get out of there while you can, John!!!
It might, but I would not recommend trying it. Althought there has been some temptation on my part to occassionally try it.
Just think of the headlines!
It wouldn’t look to good for unicyclist around the world.
