    Granite Bay Ride and OTB Crash

    Let's cut to the chase 3:08 in the Video if y'all like to see some OTB crashin'.

    Don was a trooper and allowed me to set this up on Youtube as part of my ride. I didn't know him, but after this he was OK and we chatted for a while and exchanged contact info so he could check out my channel and also recieive a edited cut of his crash.

    I was really thinking My buddy Frank was gonna go over because he went thru so slow and was at the point he almost needed to trackstand...which he can't do........But Don gave us the shot for the day.

    I think I know what he did wrong, but I'm looking for your thoughts on what happened.

    He didnít drop the seat, then it was in the way, he had to much weight forward and stuck the wheel.

    Clearly his mistake was allowing himself to be filmed

    I'm no coach, but he did something wrong.

    LOL

    Kidding. Looks like a classic case of an accident.

    Agree. If he had taken the exact same line as the previous rider, he would have been fine. Instead, his front wheel got stuck. Happens to all of us.

    I've OTBed on that exact same spot last year. It's been a little more sanitized since then, but the exit isn't exactly obvious and you don't have much time at all to figure it out if it's your first time.

    All OTBs happen for the same reason: Bike momentum is stopped while rider momentum continues. Thatís why manualing over potential wheel gobbling holes is important. The whole key to manualing, even if you suck at it, is it allows your bike to do its job, roll over obstacles without losing all momentum and thus avoiding the dreaded OTB.

    It can also happen if your front brakes are too powerful.

    And then thereís that damned gravity. This needs to be addressed once the government opens back up!

    Looks to me like he got caught in the dangerous middle ground (technique-wise) between a manual and a roller. He shifted back at the top, but not enough 'umph' to loft the front wheel. So his arms were fully extended while rolling down, and the bike dragged him forward. Then the bike stopped, but he was already being tossed forward, and OTB he goes.

    If his elbows were bent and he was in an aggressive 'attack' position as the front wheel started to roll down, he could have just extended his arms as the bike rolled down and away from him. Bike-body separation! If the front wheel had stuck in that situation, he would have just stalled out, like the rider before him, rather than getting launched.

    That moment will become the new advertisement for Sram's "modulated" brake feel. Rider clearly has Shimano brakes.

    But is the bike ok?

    Seriously, guys? It took 24 posts before someone asked this essential question.
