You and a friend are mountain biking down a challenging single track outside Mazama, WA when your friend loses control of his bike after hitting a log in the trail. He is thrown over his handle bars and lands on the point of his left shoulder; his helmet is unscathed and he says did not hit his head or back. He remained awake throughout the event. He complains of pain (6 out of 10) in his left shoulder (see photos) and does not want to move his right arm.
