    Video of me going OTB at the waterfall ! (very disturbing)



    The VERY DISTURBING part is, how in the hell do I clean the waterfall twice with no probs then go OTB after only pedaling 6 feet while trying to clip in ? How does that happen ???
    I recognize the fact that I am indeed a dork and it is perfectly acceptable to publicly laugh at me !
    BUT......
    if you have yet to ride the waterfall, this video proves how easy it is. I am obviously the type of rider who just goes OTB at the drop of a hat and I can ride it.

    Time to get your gear on and go knock it off your bucketlist.

    Thanks for the vid! I have done almost that same crash before you even get to the goods on the right. Left line is easier than that mess on the right.

    Nice work. We've all gone OTB like that at some point in our MTB careers, yours just happened to be on film.

    The Waterfall Giveth...

    ...and it taketh away!

    Glad you were able to dust-off and get back on 'your horse'. One of my riding Bro's, who has ridden the Spine dozens of times, was not so lucky this day...

    Only a dislocated finger this time.

    If there's one lesson to be learned on the WF, it's that your frame of mind and your bike handling MUST be in complete harmony or disaster is only seconds away. Going OTB 'before' the WF is MUCH BETTER than doing it ON the WF!

    OUCH ! Yeah, I watched a guy go down right after the chute today. He didnt get hurt though. "Only a dislocated finger" still sounds like it makes for a long ride back to the car !

    It's one of those times when someone asks you to "Pull my Finger..." and you should really do it!

    Way to get back on that horse CB. Seems to me like the hardest part of the right line is figuring the correct entry into the shoot. Kind of a mess over there. Took me about 4-5 times to get somewhat comfortable before I would drop in.

    Impressive. I've done the same. Yet to make the waterfall though. Usually when I'm there I'm riding solo and I've never been so inclined to risk the impending night on the mountain due to OTBing and the subsequent morning helicopter ride. Been through there a few times with the Wed Morn shuttles, but those boys eat that for lunch. No time to session.

    I'm wary about putting my GPS on my stem like you have. Does it ever get bashed? I thought that would just be asking for it.
    Today's the day I eat bikes.

    I've had the GPS on my stem for about 8 months and have went down quite a few times with it on there and have never had a problem with it.
