    Be careful, the first turn is a tough one...



    Sounds like no one was hurt, which makes it funny.
    I think I'm not as good as I thought.

    Saw that yesterday on pinkbike. Im sort of split on on how that trail is marked but it might be the GoPro lens. You can clearly see the trail on the left but hucking that jump seemed natural as well. Either way glad no one was seriously hurt and it was funny to see them crashing like lemmings.

    There's a turn kind of like that on a jump-line at the local ski resort. If you go the way that seems to make sense, it shoots you on the far side of the big jump, down the ski run, just in "nothing", except for the brush and uneven surface of the ski run. Even when you look at it before and ride it you can still make the mistake, as it just seems to naturally go the wrong way and you think that if you just hit the side it will put you in the right direction, otherwise why did they put the big jump there? I did just like in the video (but only me), actually landed it on the ski run way beyond the trail, one of those "the most air I've ever gotten" situations followed by the "I can't believe I landed that and I'm alive" moments.
