A sticky situation.



off a website.. I look at this and wonder...

How would you get out of this?

Looks like just maybe he has enough rear wheel on there to throw his weight back and up and roll on his rear wheel... you have to be good but it looks possible.

Look closely at the first jump and it appears that the video is doctored. The second jump looks real.

As for the situation above, I'd be swimming...

I think he'll swim...the angle on the other side is very steep. I think if he can hop to it, there won't be enough traction to hold his bike.

yeah, that's an awfully steep slope. He might be able to hop over, but he'd also have to get his body way over his bars by the time he lands. That's moving the body 5-6ft and the bike 4-5ft in a single hop... I think he's going swimming...
