    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...

    Lesson learned. You have to commit on a jump. Fully!

    All mine have director's commentary. Unfortunately, it seems to make many queezy...

    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?

    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.

    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.
