    How does that happen?

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    I'm guessing he had a twitch in his left hand and slammed on the front brake lol.

    If you pause the video at about 8 seconds in, where the bike is flipped upside down, it looks like the fork is bent backwards at the crown. I think the fork had previously experienced a head-on impact (no pun intended) that weakened and/or bent it. It looks like when the rider hit the speed bump, the fork finally failed, causing the rider to catapult forward over the handlebars.
    The rider in my avatar is David Etxebarria, not me.

    I thought the person jammed their foot into the wheel or spokes.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I would laugh, but I know the pain so I'll resist the urge.
