heh, that gets an 8/10 on my crash style system :)

That was pretty cool. Most interesting crash I have seen

Reminds me of the time I tried to do a flip on a trampoline and did a face plant instead...

Nice crash..... i would imagine that hurting a lil bit lol
12-24-04, 10:21 AM
imagine landing with those teeth in your back :(
12-24-04, 11:50 AM
I can imagine that hurting too... although, the scars you get when you get stabbed in the back of the leg with your chainring is pretty cool, really deep, and looks like machine gun fire just shot down your leg... Crazy :)

Did the chainring get him...I just saw him contact the tires?
If the rings got him he gets a 9.5/10, due to the added coolness of explaining weird scars to women during possible intimate moments :)

Play it in slow-mo.
Almost looks like he could have punctured a nad or two. ;)

that was week... idk, but i dont think it was THAT good of a crash.... maybe if he landed on conrete with the bike like that i give it a 6/10

my rating scale is based on contact/pressure of impact on the rider. It's a demented scale me and my HS buds made to rate our mtn bike crashes (we treated our mtbs like BMXs, so crashes were often pretty fugly).
Our favorite jump was in the middle of the woods...and we all know how those end...
My worst was faceplanting on a rock, a few seconds later, on my forearms (my fingers hurt like hell) and knees asking where the eff my bike was, then it finally landed, handlebar end right between my shoulderblades....knocking me right back into that rock, face first :(
Apparently the bike got tangled in some branches during the initial flight...
That was the creation of the SJJD (Steve, Josh, Josh, Duane, our first names) scale for crashes. That one got a 10 since I managed to render all my fingers unusable for a week, my face was pretty scraped up, and i had to wear a back brace for a while.
Based on that scale, that guy had a pretty good chance of being in some nice hurt....back drop on an upside down bike can do all kinds of pretty things....add in lower back/tenders being punctured by chainrings and you have a rather nice amount of potential pain...therefore the high score :)
That guy needed a thicker rubber shim.

why did he let go of the bike :/ thats why he crashed. 6/10 i've seen (and experienced) worse
nothing like a case of stupid to lighten up the day :D
12-26-04, 08:25 AM
Wonder what's running through his mind at that point in time... :eek:
12-26-04, 08:40 AM
Hehe, we would probably get banned by the moderators for saying it..... Either way, it aint too good...
12-27-04, 11:36 AM
I think it was pretty funny because it looked like he was laughing when he got up. Those are the best type of crashes, the ones when the crash looks bad and you get up laughing and saying let's try that again.

"Holy crap I bet this is gonna look good on film"
"Man am I glad I was able to throw my bike away, it would hurt so much more to land on it"
"HOLY **** this is gonna ********** hurt...."

I'd go with the latter of the three to be honest. Luckily he didn't appear to be permanently damaged.

Why did he go over the handlebars on the jump, didnt pull up, pressure on the bars?
Wonder what's running through his mind at that point in time... :eek:I TOLD him I needed a thicker rubber shim!
it looked like he didn't feel anything, for a few seconds. but if the clip went for a few more seconds, then he'll be screaming in pain. i give it 7/10.
