    Yeah, he looked like me trying to hold a straight line: BAD. The crash didn't look that bad but the collar bone doesn't take much to break.

    Helmet killer

    That crunching sound is my helmet cracking in half.

    Ouch, good thing you were wearing your lid. A dent like that in your skull would have ruined your day big time.
    Just how did you go over the bars going that slow? Did the front wheel get caught in a rut or something?
    I don't crash, I just have slightly uncontrolled dismounts!

    That's the epitome of the phrase, "where your eyes go, you go."
    Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner.
    Liberty is a well armed sheep, contesting the vote.

    What I don't like about helmet cameras is how they make the trails look so flat. Yeah, my front tire got caught while dropping down. It was also a section I've ridden a bunch of times before and never gave a second thought. Guess it was just one of those days.

    Yeah that is one of the things I've always found when showing others some of the videos of my local trails, it's always "that doesn't look very steep" etc. Very deflating having to explain that in reality it can be a lot harder to ride than it looks.

    No taco. The Outlaws held up admirably. Even though I did have the heaviest bike of the group...

    and for the clumsiest crash I have done so far (hopefully no more coming), fast forward to 1min34

    watch my left ankle and my face


    Biking 19th June - YouTube



    3 months later and my ankle still hurts badly from time to time, might have been a hairline fracture or something similar.

    how do you guys insert youtube video into the post?

    ahahahahaha wow thats hilarious. Great great commentary, you are the tourettes guy. I was waiting for a "bob saget" to happen. On the bright side I never expected AZ to have a forest. I must ride there!

    wtf happened

    i cant see any jump

    it just looks looks like he rides off a 6 inch drop and then flips over the front of his bike?

    did he pull the front brakes hard?

    full face helmet would have worked wonders here

    Looks like he had all his weight over the front wheel. That would be my guess on that one.
    I don't crash, I just have slightly uncontrolled dismounts!

    It really is a shame the POV cameras make everything look softer and slower. Some of these crashes were obviously super gnarly, but on camera, it looks like the victim just sort of steps off and lays down in the soft ground.

    Lame crash

    Crash at 6.57 - yes it's lame, the guy didn't die, or even break a bone, but we had a very enjoyable day out.

    A few of mine caught on camera

    Do I ever have the camera on when I have the best saves of near crashes? Of course not! So here are a few of my best crashes that I had the camera on for.

    If you listen closely you can hear my hear my heartbeat in the last one as I lay there, good stuff. That one put me off work for almost a month.

    That wasn't the only thing that got adjusted LOL I was running one of those TwentySix Products stems with the wedge clamp & it simply doesn't tighten down on the steer tube as well. A sharp rock grabbed my tire and twisted everything, tossing me over in the process. I've since changed back to a stem that clamps the steer tube directly.

    Bad spill on some routine doubles. I've hit these plenty of times before, but had a rough landing on the one before this one...brushed it off and kept going...should have stopped. Tried too hard to compensate for lost speed.

    He's wishing he had some shin guards. The pins from his pedals put some nice holes in his legs
