Team Michigan

These BMX riders called themselves Team Michigan. They hail from all across Michigan and were in Ann Arbor for a ride Wednesday night. They traded stories of scrapes, bruises, twisted ankles and broken bones from their hobby. They were exhausted and (some of them) in pain when I stopped to talk to them. The one entering the right of the frame in the first picture lifted up his shirt to show me his broken rib from a recent stunt gone bad. He said he gets light-headed and woozy when he presses on it. He and others admitted their doctors have advised them not to ride for a while, but they've decided not to adhere to such advice.
