Oh my god....I may be wrong, cause I've never done that shit before, but it looks like if he wouldnta bailed, he would have been better off? just an observation. I know it was probably freaky for him being that far back though and that's probably why he bailed. or maybe if he stayed on, it would've kept rearing back on him, in which case he would've been worse off, and that's why he bailed. Any opinions?

The optimist believes that we live in the best of all possible worlds...
The pessimist fears this to be true.

Tough call on bailing. At that point he over shot the landing that he was going to flatland= bottom out the suspension so hard that either .....

1. Break bike in half= ouch
2. Bike stays intact, but both arms break when the front slams down.

Either way, he was gonna get hurt. Badly

Damn, that's gotta hurt. Poor dude.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Did that look like a broken femur to you?


There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
