    Hillarious Crash Movie

    http://www.vorb.org.nz/ftopic-37005-...derasc-15.html

    Seriously funny video. 8 minutes of serious joy

    Lessons Learned watching this vid
    1 - Darwinism at its best
    2 - Living proof the more engagement points on a rear hub are good
    3 - People do really stupid things without their helmets on
    4 - Trials does not look fun...you have two choices when you crash, land on your spine or your face.
    5 - Do not ride the rear brake or front brake. Use them in moderation
    6 - when riding a bmx, do not aim for walls
    7 - dumbass, tighten your stem before you go dirtjumping
    8 - Kamloops has some bigass drops
    9 - Skidding is in fact fun to watch when done properly
    10 - big jumps, big trannies...land on tranny

    I feel much smrtr watching this video

    People need to know their limitations, I know that a lot of people can pull off these ridiculous jumps but they have to realize how easy it is to screw up.

    You have to wonder if all these bike companies are going to get sued by kids parents at some point.

    I forgot about stylized skidding, that can be fun, I haven't done that in a long time.

    I've seen that video of the kid on the bmx bike slamming into the wall. It's pretty brutal, he's spitting out teeth onto the grass. You can find it somewhere on google video.

    that's why I only attempted flatland BMX for a little bit, it hurt too much when learning.

    OH MAN, I love stuff like that, some of it was clearly over those people's heads and some of it was clearly botched attempts, still funny all the same especially the very last one, OUCH

    **** I didn't realise that the Creswick Quarry Gap had been sacked, looked like he came out pretty well from it though.

    More lessons:
    11. Don't weight the front end going into the gnarliest section of trail.
    12. Begin your superman on the upward arc of your jump, not on the way down.

    Hey Maelstrom, that last gap looks like one I've seen in Transition's clips - - is that Kamloops? Yaaagggh, that's big-time commitment to catch that tranny
