Anyone know the story behind this?
That's Kyle Marshall, Pinkbike team rider and National Junior champ.
I think there's video of it over on Pinkbike. He got his bell rung pretty bad, but he's ok.
yeah I watched that on Freecaster live. super gnarly.
Is there a Vancouver in Taiwan?! I had no idea!!
Nothing sums up my life's achievements like my stuffed corpse, suplexing a cougar.
That was a scary crash. He did not look lucid walking of the course sorry I mean as he was being walked off the course.
You can all go to hell. I'll be joining you shortly and I'm bringing beer and cheetos.
Well its a good thing he's ok…that looked painful
You can tell that must have been just brutal due to the total lack of tumble.
Just one smack to dissipate all that energy..
Don't be an engineer, every one of them I've met is socially retarded
Painful. But thats one tough rotor
wow happened so fast he had no time to eject
My dad talked to Kyles mom shortly after this.. Spent the night in the hospital if I remeber correct, just super shook..
I've done that. Not that fast of course. I tapped my front brake somewhere in Rock City in Whistler on a rainy day and went head first. My momentum was moving downhill and to the left and my bike went right. I landed on the left side of my head so I got twisted in two directions. I've already got a ruptured disk from 30 years of judo so this didn't help at all. It felt like someone dipped my arm in gasoline and lit it up.
My buddy thought I was dying as all I could do was groan for the first 30 seconds after the crash.
I took the rest of the day off.
