    This is why you wear your pads, you never know what could happen

    My crash at 45mph at Sunris Ski Resort Downhill - YouTube


    during rear suspension compressing somehow the brake line was kinking towards the tire i heard it rub then felt no brakes at all. Going for both brakes at the same time well you know i only got front and it washed out pretty quickly.

    got a little rash on my hip and lower back but the coresaver worked. have bruised ribs and a severely sprained hand.

    Doesn't look like 45 mph to me, but I'm glad you're OK.

    yeah now imagine never touching your brakes until you just pass the slippery rock trailhead. Then hitting them and only having front brakes.

    I was heading to yardsale trailhead.
