    Cringe Worthy?

    I often wonder if the guy at 1.16.00 lived. Any of you older guys have short and long term diabiltiy?

    So brutal, I couldn't finish it. I can see a lot of broken collarbones and ribs! Reminds me of when I broke mine a couple years ago.

    i think this is the vid that they show at Buffalo Wild Wings when I'm enjoying some beers...
    Everyone around me is watching baseball, football...and I'm the only one glued to the DH carnage.
    Sooooo many OTB crashes.

    Most of the beginning was the old Mt Snow course. SICK section, especially when wet. It had a line and if you flew through it you felt ecstatic approaching the finish line.
    Keep the Country country.

    Prolly a few pieces salvageable, everything else is all wadded up into a crumpled mess!

    Repaint the remains & mount on decorative wood for a centerpiece!

    That hurt just watching it. It's much better for me to just watch the vids of pros cleaning those same sections smooth and effortlessly. It makes it easier for me to commit when attempting anything tough. Now I'm going to have these images looping through my head!



    Second thought: Maybe that's a good thing. LOL.

    It hurts watchin' that!

    I can't believe alot of the pros don't wear any body armor nowadays (well I know your less restricted and thus faster). I just hate surgeries, physical therapy, not being able to ride and the lasting aches and pains that accompany going armorless. Guess I'm just getting old and decrepit.
