    That was a strange place to eat it... right after the logs its pretty much that berm... don't remember anything that could've whipped his rear out like that.

    Outside pedal was down and I clipped a rock. You can see it right before I eat it and it kicks the back end out.

    That could've been 4 minutes shorter.

    FYI: Just watch the last 15 seconds if you want to know the ending.

    Ah, after I full screen'd it I saw.

    I did the same thing on a lower section of Livewire on Saturday too.. stripped some of the pedal threads in my cranks. :/ Didn't notice until this morning when I got on board and my pedal felt funny.

    Yes, but it's not my video so I couldn't edit it. 'Course, you wanted to see my awesome riding anyhow, right?

    Yes, I'm OK. Sore wrist, but don't think it's broken. Yes, I'm pretty lucky I was slowing down for the berm and rolled out a bit when I ate it.

    But yes, I'll be more careful to keep my pedals level before going into that berm. My new bike has a lower BB and there's some rocks poking up just before that berm on the left.

    Awesome trail video...would love to have something like that nearby....along with the bike capable of landing some of those big hits and the courage/skill to make the most of it.

    Looked like a nice leisurely ride down Livewire... I've found that's when I tend to make the most mistakes riding, when I just "chill" rather than full-on attack a trail. You probably should have been up off the seat more, with your pedals level.

    Think he was prepping to enter the berm, thus the outside pedal went down... just a little too early so it got caught.

    Besides the crash, conditions looked perfect! Not much dust at all

    There were big gusts that kicked up some dust storms, but overall it was nice this weekend. Just cold on the lifts.

    dude, i hope your wrist is feeling better. aside from the crash, it was a good time ridin' and chillin' with ya' saturday!

    video viewers: it may be a little tough to see in the video, but there's a few embedded rocks sticking out of the ground exactly where there's a good line into the berm.

    yep. the entrance to the berm lets you pedal swap from a right pedal dip into a left pedal dip to whip thru the corner. the rocks are right where you might want to dip the right pedal and bam......

    also, it may look like a nice leisurely run down lw, but they were going plenty fast on that run.

    if you notice there are a few spots where you have the pedal in the down position right before your crash...mainly the turn before that....might be when you start getting tired you lower that pedal....be aware of that
