    well, it isn't a dirtjump story, but it is an urban/street story.

    i was trying to hit this stair gap on a city monument. there are like 4 or so sets of 5 stairs. well, i decide on this part where there is a hand rail that i'd try and hope over the rail and land on the down side of the next set of stairs... well i saw that i was about 6 inches too low to clear the handrail, so i picthed my bike and i ended up landing of my feet and barely staying standing. well, i land on my feet, barely, and then my bike comes flying over my head, does a full front flip, and lands where i was aiming to land on its wheels and sort of rode its way down the landing to only fall at the bottom. i thought it was funny cause it looked like my bike was being ridden by a ghost.

    Ghost biking is always funny, unless you end up breaking something on the bike. The only funny thing I remember doing while djing is totally mistiming my boost on a very small jump near my house, the bike ended up completely vertical with me still on it, and instead of ditching it like I should have, I figured tapping the rear brake while landing would let me come back down on both wheels. It worked, but it worked too well, so I slapped the front end down, my fork bottomed out and spiked and set me over the bars. I tweaked my bars in the process. I was not hurt except in my pride.

    Haha some good stories you guys have. I dont have any ones other than stupidity.

    A few weeks back I was hitting the jump (the jump in the new thread i just posted) and never checked the landing, my brother had set his bike right behind the tranny. I ran into the stem of his bike, shifting the front wheel and bars on his bike parallel, I went OTB and lucky landed unharmed.

    Also, nothing on either bike was broken... to this day i dont understand how nothing got bent.

    Mine was at the skatepark this morning while warming up. Still a bit cold I started trying out some 3's out of this small bowl. Should've warmed up. About the third attempt I had full rotation but slipped off the pedals on the landing. Slammed on the tt, luckily missed my junk but hit the bottom of my pelvis where your femuer connects. Well I'm dancing around with my hand halfway up my ass. I turn around and there this old lady doing her morning power walk just laughing away.

    When i was on vacation in edmonton i desided to check out their local hill for some runs. I met up with a local rider and we started riding. When we went to the djs (5-6ish foot tall tables) I didnt check my speed after the first jump and went flying past the landing overshooting it by several feet and landing from 8 feet up to flat. My ankles hurt for a while but overall i found it funny because as soon as i was in the air i realized i was screwed and everything went quiet and turned into slow motion and all i could hear was my breathing and the slow motion "ooooooooooooooooooooh shiiiiiiiiiiiiit" from some of the other riders as i approached the ground. I rode it out but my ass met the rear tire and my ankles where purple the next day.
