Or anyone else.
Took a buddy of mine out on his first mtb ride. The trail started off with a 3mi climb that gained 1200'. Once at the top we rode around on the fire road there so he could get used to the gearing on his bike, played around with the suspension settings and tire pressures so he could feel what the differences were.
After about an hour we headed back down the way we road up. About 50yrds from the top there is a little drop about 10", not much more then a big curb. He asked me, “How do you ride over things like that. I kind of laughed to my self then said as seriously as possible, "As you are rolling towards it sit up and take your hands off the bars about 1/2 inch to allow the front tire to track its own path. When you feel the rear drop off put your hands back on."
Guess what, that is what he did. Now this drop is not that intimidating but it is over a very rocky section with lots of shale and loose rocks. I started laughing before his front tire even hit the bottom because I saw the front wheel start to turn and realized it was going to catch on a rock. Well up and over the bars he went. No damage to his bike, some good bruises and his ego was a bit shot because he thinks he can do anything. Then I said to him, "Now you know why not to do that ."
True story but it happend a few years ago. We both laugh our arses off about it now.
