    lucky for that guy. i've actually gone over that corner. my bike and i tumbled pretty far down. took about a half hour to climb back up that with my bike over my shoulder. ZD and the boys had no idea where i was since you cant see down there from the trail...

    same corner at :41 in the full trail vid...

    Oh wow, I remember that section quite well. I actually went down a bit lower and had I not landed on my feet it could have been a lot worse than it was (badly sprained finger and dented swingarm). That trail is pretty awesome but not very forgiving.

    The right hand turn where pajamas crashes is tight. If you don't start wide or hop your back end, you can get hung up ...which he did. That exposure after the move makes that turn mentally difficult. I have clipped a pedal there.

    Interesting that in the second video, Berrecloth and his buddies cut the corner on that turn and eliminate that tight right hander.

    Here's another video of Flying Monkey. I like the section with the huge boulder which I didn't notice in the other vid (probably moved by now):

    You don't need to ride Spineology clean, I don't mind a dab here or there.

    The crash vid in the OP is my friend Kelly, with Mel out in front. Kelly was a fairly new rider at the time. He can clean that trail easily now.

    This trail is crazy looking. His videos are all pretty sick.

    Wow, why the hell was the guy on that trail? Looks like he's about 10 levels below what he should be. Very dangerous.

    I've seen some crazy stuff on that trail. I've seen one of the most talented tech riders I know make a small mistake that resulted in a 20 ft cliff fall. Luckily only minor injuries, but was so shaken up he could barely finish the trail. I've also seen a friend ride it on a 24" BMX bike with a suspension fork and only a back brake. He actually ripped it much faster than I could believe.

    He rode it again last weekend. Cleaned the whole trail including a big 15 foot drop.

    If you've ridden much of southern Utah as I assume you have you know not every feature is directly on the trail. Shoot, monkey has 100 foot drops if you want, just not adviseable.

    That trail looks amazing, and ridiculously dangerous at the same time. I like it.

    Great videos. I'll have to practice a little more before I do anything like that.

    Love the FM vids. I so want to ride this trail (I think) but for one reason or another have never had the opportunity.
