    Pugsley dirt jump disaster!



    A buddy of mine, who has only been three times on a mountain bike, decided to try to hit this dirt jump behind my house. Glad I had the camera!

    He was OK.

    Looks like he's nosedived in, come up short, hit with the front wheel, bounced up then is captured in time with that beautiful shot. Nice...

    Oh, I see the problem.

    His feet aren't on the pedals.

    I've never experienced it, but I bet those tires don't exactly feel like a spa treatment on the face.

    Considering the circumstances

    He looks incredibly calm.

    I love those things. Nice pic!

    p.s. Since we know your bud was fine, how was the bike?

    Photo proof that he really did hit it. Since your friend does not have much MTB experience, maybe when discussing this trick you could have used other descriptive terms biking terms such as "roll up the dirt jump and land upright on those [SIZE="7"]HUGE[/SIZE] tires". Or something like that.

    Nice capture. You gotta admire his determination with that death grip on the bars.
