    Maybe rear shock was too soft and rebound too fast. When it rebounded, it shot the riders weight forward and the front wheel planted.
    Is he ok? Any significant injuries?

    Dude....

    Hope everythings intact, that looked like a pretty solid dig.

    And yes, get a new lid. I'd recommend the Kali stuff. VERY solid product line.

    ooooo fack this angle really shows it! Looks like he tried to tail whip it, and landed sideways. Basically he landed still sideways and highsided himself when he landed.

    I just kept rewinding, going "oooooooo fack" everytime I heard that crunch.

    Hope you're okay man!

    Nothing broken, just everything above the waist is sore and swollen.

    Poor execution. Bike just went sideways right off the takeoff. I tried to lower the landing gear but that failed.

    Had I been on the Mojo it would have been a different story

    That was only the second ride with the helmet too .

    I was due for a crash...

    Adding insult to injury...

    Once Dan had composed himself to the point of getting back on the bike, this Dad rides up with his kids (and a shovel) and happily explains how he made these jumps for his kids to play on. Dan shrank a bit and looked even more sad. Back at the car, Dan found a tick embedded in his arm. Ugh!

    Great news that there are no broken bones and I hope that you heal quickly!

    Need another choice on that poll - Yes, new helmet and sign him up for the next jump clinic with Chris at Calabazas.

    It looks like he pre-loaded and then stood up too early. When he went over the lip his arms and legs were rigid and it shot him off in the wrong direction.
    Also, to bring up something SVSocrates posted on Facebook a while back, had he been riding flats that crash may have gone differently. It looks like you wanted to put your right leg down to take the impact but were locked in.

    Seriously, I'm glad to hear you're ok. If you need a chiro recommendation, PM me. I've got a great one. Put's me back together every time I do something like that.

    Wow. At 6 seconds you can hear the sound of needing a new helmet.

    I agree looks like he pre-loaded and jumped to soon.....causing him to land rear tire first on table top and then slam front tire down on downslope

    Hope you are okay as well....

    Two perspectives!?! How awesome is that?!

    Bummer of a crash, looked like it hurt... Nothing like spending good money on something, only to have to replace it soon thereafter.

    Glad to hear nothings broken though!

    Honestly it looks like the only problem with the jump was beginning to go sideways right after the jump. The right-rear leg/foot sometimes will push the bike inwards so it starts tailing to the left. Not a problem with short jumps bit a large jump gives the bike time to be way off upon landing.

    Brave jump, though, specially on hardtails.

    Dan: I hope you're OK. That was a nasty tumble, and that's why I don't do jumps. Yeah, call me a wimp. I hear there are some dirt jumping lessons at Calabazas you could take.

    My theory on his crash...take this with a grain of salt since I don't have any experience to speak from...other than watching others.

    He was on his hardtail and followed young buck (I guess he calls himself "Stud") without stopping to remember and/or adjust for that factor. Failure followed.

    At the end of the video, I shake my head at the camera thinking, damnit, there goes his collarbone after I just healed mine. Arsehole.
    Can we talk tires now?

    X-ray showed no broken bones, but I'm pretty sure my left hand has something broken in it. I can't grip anything with it. Squeezing things with it results in sharp pain. Could have been worse.

    Time to look into the jump classes.

    Dan does two things regularly when he jumps - he stays too far forward over the bike. Notice the pics of him on the infamous jump and the other one from demo.

    The other thing is he is not balanced on the pedals - he always has one up and down.

    I have to wonder if he is pulling up on his pedals - this will cause imbalance. Learn to jump with flat pedals and you'll be more balanced in the air.

    Nice faceplant! I did one on the rocky manzanita 'climb' at skeggs. Full yard sale. :-/

    I think the comment below is prime for the "make a video" thread!

    Definitely a problem with body position.


    Thanks for all the well wishes and style critiques. Now I have something to practice when I get back on the bike. Time to be 6 again and start launching off the neighborhood driveways.

    New helmet? Nah, new bike, with 6"+ of travel.

    I have to wonder if he is pulling up on his pedals - this will cause imbalance. Learn to jump with flat pedals and you'll be more balanced in the air.

    pics of raf and jdub for comparison
    on my 'header' jump, I know I was way too forward also. I had flashbacks after watching dan's crash, as I think it was similar the way the front wheel got crossed up.

    Props to Dan for attempting the jump. It's a pretty good size one. Hope you feel better soon.
    Faster is not always better, but it's always more fun

    Bummer dude, I think that jump was actually less sketchy before someone took the landing out,

    Although his rep as a poster on this board isn't so great, Chris Duncan teaches a good jumping class.

    That crash and its aftermath were freaking hilarious. (Although at the time it kind of sucked.) How long does it take to make one of those video thingies?

    Man... NO KIDDING! Totally akward! I just thought oh fark!!! The first words out of his mouth were "my turn for a broken collar bone." Then it was DOUBLE FARKKKKK!!

    He made the quickest recovery ever and rode out.

    We'll make sure to record the do-over (on the Ibis). Hehehe.

    Once you take to the air it's just a matter of time before EPIC FAIL. My last big one was on the step up step down on Braille and that one cracked my helmet in five spots. One thing is for sure though, when you go back and nail the jump that bit you, it feels oh so good. Glad to hear you're not hurt to bad. I feel like part of learning to jump is learning how to fall without hurting yourself. Keep practicing

    Good one....and I laugh as a too often participant of the "Ring my bell" fan club... Glad Dan is ok. He was fortunate to say the least.
