    I've been told the old Cannondale Ravens float really well.

    Makes you wonder how much crazy **** we all missed before Go Pro.
    It also makes you wonder had he been using clipless pedals the bike would still be attached to him, to be ridden another day.

    Either that, or it would still be attached to him as they went downstream together.
    Use it, use it, use it while you still have it.

    Whoever comes up with putting trails next to rapids or alligator infested swamps is looking for some excitement..
    I give positive rep all around but then I get negative rep from all the clowns.

    Clipless Pedals VS Platform...Debate..

    It makes you wonder had he been using clipless pedals the bike would still be attached to him, to be ridden another day.
    I have never in the 13 plus years of MTBing ever became that seperated from my bike using Clipless pedals. I know some of you will say (like above) that the rider would have went down with the bike. If you ever rode clipless you would know that wouldn't be the case. He grabbed the tree to save himself the bike would have still been underneath him. Even if the bike slipped over his right foot would have unclipped and he would have still saved himself and the bike.

    That looked like a total set up. Had he really fallen he would have gone with the bike. Every one is making movies now. Great acting.

    That section has a high penalty for failure. Looks like a cool trail though, must be in Canada somewhere.

    Ha ha ha, to be hardcore, you have to live hardcore. And sometimes your ride ends up in the river.

    Man, sucks to have see your bike become a kayak. It would be a very hard thing for me to watch my bike go down the river knowing I could not do anything to save it. Class 5 rapids are not something you want to jump in to save a bike I guess.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.
