    This is off-topic and I don't mean to derail the thread, but I just gotta say, it's amazing how bad streaming video STILL is after all these years. I have a great high speed DSL connection and streaming still never plays like it is advertised.

    haha....

    anyways that looks like a paralyzer or death crash there. Seemed like the guy on the end was getting up ok, but the other two look down for the count. What's the status on all those guys?

    I think there's a lot of factors to that ... streaming video does NOT need to suck.

    The streaming video feed from the Giro is great quality, high framerate, 640x480, nice.

    I'm sure they're fine. If they weren't, then the video wouldn't be "funny".

    no kidding. it looks like they crash because they peg someone in the head with the edge of the couch.

    Those guys were definitely seriously hurt. It looks like they mostly missed that bystander though.

    That BMX video is pretty amazing. I've never seen anybody do rail slides UP hill! And the backwards landings!
