Apparently there was a big drop over the edge. No idea what he was thinking going into that corner that fast. You gotta wonder if maybe he had cooked his brakes leading to that corner. Looks to me like the two that collided with the motorcycle were going too fast as well. Hard to say for sure though.

Guy was braking hard in a good ergo braking position and the back wheel still came up…pretty good brakes.

Watched the footy again and not a single one of them was/is even close to attempting to apex the corner correctly.

Why slag free swag?:rolleyes:

ummm, as your doctor i recommend against riding with a scaphoid fracture.

What a bunch of ID10T's even without the car/motorcycle there or not, they still came in way too fast would have still crashed.

This kinda explains the crash a little better.

From a DH rider to Road bike racer, I've seen some really fit and fast bike riders with zero bike handling skills. Cough Triathlete cough
I've seen similar, and Ive almost done the same. When you're in the O2 hole, pain cave, what have you. Making a split second mistake is easy.
