    Post your crashes, no shame here.

    I am not ashamed to post my first crash.....after having my gopro2 for less than 24 hours. I sprained my middle finger on my right hand which is problem some considering I teach/play guitar for a living. The camera doesn't capture the height of the fall, but these are big chunky rocks I'm falling from and I ride a 29er. I probably had a good 8-10 ft for my head to go to hit the ground. I scratched my lens already but thank god the replacements are dirt cheap.

    Yep it was dumb and its easy to rewatch it and see why I fell. It looks mild on video, but here's a picture of it with out moving.

    Nice crash dude!!! i did something similar but didn't have the cam going at the time..

    REALLY wish i had as some how I got right foot stuck between the frame and the front tire and left foot twisted around so I couldn't unclip... I was laughing cause I couldn't get out with out butt walking off to the side of the rocks so i could untwist the bike.. would have been an AWESOME funny vid

    That used to be my bike but sold it to my cousin after my Yeti was finished. It was a large frame bike which I thought was my size but I found a medium was more my fit. I don't know how often he rides so not sure if/when he plans to customize the bike for his fit.

    If you look closely, there is a small board on the stump I was trying to jump. I had done it a few times before, but this time it moved.

    Great thread idea!

    Here's one of my recent OTB experiences. I was riding "up on the bars" for a split-second, and thought maybe I could somehow save it....nope!

    it APPEARS that the;; how would you say, stocky guy is indeed seated when he drops off and lands.
    congrats,to you/him and the bike/suspension, but I believe MOST people stand while getting air and landing.unfortunately Chad Reed seat-bounced last week and now will miss the rest of the season due to
    a fractured tibfib two broken ribs....GET WELL SOON CHAD!!!

    Short crash clip from my Megavalanche 2011 qualifying run at Alpe d'Huez, France. Messed up a triple jump approach and ended up bending the bars of my '08 Enduro Expert. Run had already been ruined by a couple of minor spills by this point. Impact knocked the helmet mount of my POV HD off which I at first didn't realize when setting off again. No harm done, though.

    here's 2 from our whistler exploits, one from september last year and one from may 2010,,,
    this one is on river runs through it, one of whistlers signature xc trails, and this is a classic example why you should always wear a helmet, and how not to ride skinnies,
    <iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/uB2cLY3zHzk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>



    this one is in the bikepark on bearcub connector, on the long flat turn, it was very dry and loose, but bad visibility cause of the cloud,
    warning for those that are squemish, this vid contains images of broken bones,

    crash at Angelfire.

    I'm the guy in the front. You have to look real close and you will see that I clipped a pedal on a rock sticking out of the ground and got tossed. Put a big scuff in my helmet, got a stiff neck, and was a little loopy for a while. Continued riding after I replaced my pedals. I still laugh when I see myself all tangled up in the bike and looking disoriented.

    Not really sure! Hit my head really hard, I just kind of woke up and tried to stand up and couldn't. It took me a few seconds to realize I was tangled in my bike and the rope. Can't wait to get back to Angelfire.

    Crash at the end at Braille Trail in Demonstration Forest Santa Cruz. The crash turned the camera off.

    That sounds like when i hit my head on my mx bike. "Just kind of woke up". I think thats a nicer way of saying I got knocked the fug out.
