    Hmm... can't really tell what caused the fall? All I can hear is some brakes hitting hard but I am not sure if it's from whoever was filming. Any ideas?

    None of us have a clue what brought the fall on! Maybe my brakes as I was pretty close the the rider that fell.

    On the slomo it looks like the front wheel locked briefly then slid out, FWIW.

    Ya, looked like his front wheel locked out or slid out for some reason. Can't really tell why, ground looks smooth and not slick... almost looked like the rim bent, maybe? Could have just looked like that because of the sudden lock-up.

    Would you believe I had to tell him to wear his full face on this day! He was riding really well and took a silly fall! A great holiday in the Alps with this fall and another one which was Air Rescue! First time out with the GoPro and Olympus EPL-3.
    Anyone interested in the EPL-3 ??? Here is a link to a few photographs captured on the same trip.
