Rider is OK, generally. Consider this a PSA not to land on your front wheel on soft stuff:

Damn, what fork? Sounds like the rider augered nose first?

RST M29. Yes, augered in at high velocity. The good news is the frame, carbon handlebar, wheel and components seem undamaged, the fork absorbed all the energy and exploded. I suppose RST could call that a safety feature.
29ers don't jump. Especially not with bar ends.
